Good weather for ducks!

Pardon this weather rant. It's hard to separate "How was your commute?" from "What was the weather like?" since I'm outside experiencing the weather while riding.

While I've missed most of the hurricane, it's been fairly miserable for riding this week. Consider:

At least one of my commutes every day this week has been affected by rain, or the threat of rain.

I've left early, and late, to miss the rain, and still got wet.

I wondered why my eyes were so blurry last night, until I realized the reason was water spots on my glasses.

The weather gauge nearest my house has registered an average July's precipitation (over 5") in the last seven days.

Not directly rain, but humidity: sweat was dripping off my shorts when I got out of the shower this morning.

I'm not planning to take the car, because traffic is so bad when it rains that I can bike home faster than driving. But this is getting ridiculous!
