Hurricane Obstacle

A couple weekends ago, I, along with millions of others along the East Coast, had a hurricane pass overhead dumping tons of rain and packing plenty of wind.  The following Monday, I jumped on my bike like usual and headed to work.  Along my 5 mile route I was thwarted several times by downed trees and power lines. 

I could have turned around and gone back home and jumped in my truck.  However - I have to get to work.  I commute by bike.  I cant let something like a hurricane keep me from what I do - Ride!!  Instead of being frustrated by the obstacles so cruelly thrust in my path, I used it as a good excuse to get to work late and ride a few extra miles.
