The 40 Year Old Arc Virgin!
Oh my gosh, I have never seen so much rain...
I knew it was going to be rainy, but I also knew it was going to be warm. I thought I might take the Schwinn out for a spin today, even if I did get rained on a little bit. But WOW! It started raining yesterday afternoon and for the most part it has not stopped yet. No storms. No wind. No thunder and lightning. Just to most persistent, steady downpour of rain I have seen in recent memory. Instead of biking in the rain, I have spent the entire day finding every tiny drip of water in my basement, because they have all become steady streams. Nothing too terribly bad, thankfully, but also nothing I can fix right away either. Looks like we're goint to need some chimney work at a minimum.
Needless to say, the bikes are idle. This stinks.
Could be worse. We could be in Texas. We're sending good thoughts their way today.
By "we're" I mean, me and my family. Not me and the bikes, BTW.
