I'll take your storms. Sunny and 65° with a 95% chance of riots, here.

New convertible pants and ti spork arrived more than one week ahead of original estimated date. Decided to entomb the spork even though I love it.

A Teenager Who Cycled Her Father Across India Gets An Offer To Train For The Olympics

https://twitter.com/BBCWorld/status/1265546761604653064

Not only did she cycled, but she did it all standing up because her father was still recovering from his injuries and was sitting on the seat makes it ever ascardier . :twitchy:

yeah, it’s to justify putting more speed cameras. Her tandem idea with this is to raise citywide speeding fines to $500 minimum. In the name of pedestrian safety of course :notamused:.

I was going to post something silly taking a dig at, err, all that, but can’t bring myself to do so. I hope you’re safe.

What color is the spork? Is it painted Ti?

I'm about 4 or 5 miles away from the epicenter, so I haven't heard or seen anything. I used to live closer and I do ride through that area frequently, though, and I've been tempted to check it out. I think I'll wait 'til the embers cool, though. There's been an arrest and charges filed, so hopefully that'll help, too.

trying to get home via standby is probably the most stressful thing one can ever do. And I do not wish this on anyone.

I'll be flying with a puppy, and I've never done that before. I hope it is less stressful than flying standby.

It's a health issue, apparently.

If you are paying for the flight you should be fine. Most of the major airports have puppy relief areas too.

yeah, the health of DC’s coffers. :innocent:

they've been angling for it for at least a year. Mainly to increase revenue coming in from speed cameras (since waze gained popularity DC speed camera revenue gone down significantly even with increased camera count). Almost 80% of DC has a speed limit of 25 anyway.

I agree that there is a high number of drivers are taking full advantage of the emptier roads, but I don’t buy it for a second that DC government has anything but dollar signs in their eyes regarding this “initiative”.

Good to know. Thank you

Frontier is the only airline that goes non-stop from Wichita to Denver, so yessir..... I paid for the flight, the seat, the puppy carry on, the air I plan to breathe, and the armrest I "might" use. I just hope the engines on the plane start.

Riding home in the dusk/dark can be kind of stressful on city roads.

I don't even know how speed cameras work (beyond what the name implies). We have a few red light cameras, but even those were cut back some because enough people complained to the state government.
