Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Woke up to thunder and rain slamming my window at 05:30. There were no tornadoes.

Sad.
No Fios either. #population_thinsity

Today’s forecast is for 35-45 mph winds.

Also incorrect. I could live without ketchup, but mustard is a necessary addition to most cold-cut sandwiches. Also brats.

I love how they put that info on their website. Being able to go into a store and locate the exact thing I'm looking for immediately is so convinient.
