Rain. It would have to fall on a Saturday. A driving, heavy rain. I'm thinking of something Wallace Stevens wrote: "the sort of man who prefers a drizzle in Venice to a hard rain in Hartford". I guess it describes most people.
Even though it’s fairly warm, seeing such heavy rain didn’t get me into the mood to ride. Plus, more of same has been forecast for the rest of today. Then the temperature is expected to drop from about 22 to 8C (72 to 45F) by early tomorrow. If the rain stops, it could be a nice, crisp fall morning: one of my favorite riding conditions.
For today: bike maintenance, reading, non-blog writing, quality time with Max and Marley and, possibly, cooking.
