Weather Woes - Tuesday Tunes, vol 125

Oh this weather.  It has me singing the blues.  Rain, rain and more rain.  And when there's no rain there's some wind and thunder and lightning.  This is one of the problems with bike riding: it requires semi-decent weather.  (Although I should prolly clarify and say that one of my problems with bike riding is that it requires semi-decent weather.  Some of you might not have a problem with it.  Me on the other hand?  I'm no weather warrior.)

On the road, rain is a bust.  On the trail, rain can lead to mud which is also a bust.  Rain can be a bust all the way around unless you hit the trail right after the proper amount of rain, which can lead to this strange phenomenon called "hero dirt" (this "hero dirt" requires a post on some other day).

Never in my life – aside from the times that I was busy chasing the Powder Day – have I watched the weather so closely and with such obsession.  Four times a day I check the hourly postings on weather.com.  Obsessed, I say, obsessed!  Some check Facebook and whatnot while I check my weather app.  I don't just check the weather locally, either.  I check the locales of various friends and such:

If you look closely, you'll see rain flying in every city around me.  Boo.

It's Tuesday and it's raining so I thought I'd bring back the Tuesday Tunes.  Today's chapter is all about my Weather Woes.  Happy Tuesday!

Yep Yep Yep True true true. When the rain comes they run and hide their heads. They might as well be dead when the rain comes.
