Bike to Work Month - Day 11 - Tricky Weather

So far this week it's been all about the weather. Yesterday morning the radar showed the entire area blanketed in light rain. I donned rain gear and no rain fell, so I took off the jacket and finished the ride in my rain pants.

This morning, the radar showed very widely scattered showers. I skipped the rain gear and walked outside to pouring rain. I waited 5 minutes for it to let up and rode off. Just half a mile from the house the roads were completely dry.

This afternoon the radar showed some scattered, really ugly storm cells. I put on my helmet and walked out the office. On the way to my bike, I looked north and the sky was ominously dark, I looked west and the skies were equally ominous. Then a clap of thunder shook me to my core and I turned around and walked back to the office.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
