Actual rain? Or just really heavy mist?

Was enough to get me thoroughly soaked.

It's not unusual, it's unheard of.

My manager just told me not to report vax status to our employer, as that triggers them to ask us to come back.

My suspicious nature had me doing that anywy.

Your friend seemed pleasant but I did not get a chance to talk to her.

ps she beat me up the hill. I was off the back at the start and only caught/passed two of the riders on the climb. Fun but messy/gritty ride.

I'm finally ready to head up to the roof to batten things down, and I hear thunder in the distance. A stitch in time saves nine. Or some such. On the btight side, the wind prognosis for tomorrow, seems to be more-or-less non-threatening. We're far enough west for it to burn out before arriving here.

How many years has that been there?

She's a great climber, (I'm pretty sure who you met). In 2019 she was in a race put on by Rhassan Bahati, 9000 feet of climbing in 75 miles. A mixed field with local pros, cat 2s, 3s, etc. She finished 3rd woman and 26th of 105 overall and won $100 for her effort. She claims to be out of shape now. pffft.

Latest update says we won't even get much rain, let alone wind. I will prolly go ahead and tie down the rooftop gas tank anyway. A ten minute job.

seedsbelize 08-18-21 03:03 PM

Sometimes extreme humidity can be a good thing. Gets the sweat rolling before you have a chance to be askeered of it. Third shower of the day completed. There will be at least one more.

Torrential downpour right here right now. I'm talkin' like southeast Asia style downpour.

That is slightly unusual.

Nice! :)

I received a shipment from The Black Bibs today. I'm trying out their $40 bibs that have gotten a lot of great reviews. They look really good, on first inspection - nice fabric and a cushy chamois.

My expertise is primarily on the East Coast, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

Submit your queries in the proper format.
