I rolled out at 5:30AM into a band of moderate-to-heavy rain. Strong winds were blowing everything sideways in the beam of my Liberty's headlight this morning--- bursts of heavy rain, leaves, branches - stuff not long enough in the beam for me to register....
Not a problem - but it got my attention.
No deer, of course. Only scooter riders out in this stuff - though, admittedly, damn few of them ...
And then I learned once safe home - that many of my fellow citizens were harmed by these same winds.
Very sad business.
I took 154 photos this morning - and it was hard to keep the camera dry for most of them.
Arrived 1/2hr early .......Dino's not open....but I could smell the coffee brewing in there ("Kenyan A", today)
My Nolan kept me dry and fog-free - as the rain clicked mightily on it at even my modest speeds.
The second band I rode through on my way home was....@18 mins of ..."Je ne sais quoi ~!" as it attacked me from my left front (what is that in Navy-speak?)
These two - I'm almost blown dry before heading home into the above, before the 2nd excitement.
Thoughts and prayers for all those others.
