and the sky says drip drip drip  
Ugh... riding the nasty subway after walking for the past few days was miserable, but I'm not bad ass enough to walk to work in the rain. Hopefully it will clear up in time for the walk home. At least I got a little writing done on the train.

You just need an umbrella.

See, I hate umbrellas. For most trips, I'd rather walk in the rain than with an umbrella.

What is it with you people who refuse to use umbrellas? My co-worker is the same way. I don't get it.

My only problem with an umbrella on a long walk is that your lower legs get soaked. I had this wicked huge one in college that I used to use when I walked 20 minutes to campus, and that was always the problem.

There are a lot of careless umbrella people in the city who don't give a shit if they hit people in the face with their umbrellas. They've turned me against umbrellas.

Weather woes
Yeah, I was all excited when I rode my bike in on Monday. Thanks to my schedule today was the only other day I could ride in, so this rain really pissed me off. Hopefully we'll get a clear week next week and I can ride in every day.

Re: Weather woes
On the bright side, it made me realize just how much I enjoy the walking.

Re: Weather woes
Yeah, same here. I am really, really disappointed that I couldn't ride more this week, whereas I was semi-worried about facing the traffic and Heartbreak Hill (my route literally contains the famously steep hill on the Boston Marathon route) again.

Re: Weather woes
Damn, I've seen that on tv. That's got to be a tough bike ride.

Re: Weather woes
All I gotta say is thank heavens for gears. By the top I'm usually on the lowest or the next-to-lowest gear. With them it's not too bad, but it is daunting when I start up again. The problem is the other routes are either ludicrously narrow or are nearly as steep with more traffic and some bad intersections, so I've been keeping with that route for now.

Sorry to hear it is raining on you. We're getting rained on here as well in Mid-Missouri.

I wish I could help you out, but walking in the rain really does suck, it is why we invented cars.

"What sort of contraption is this, Ford?"

"It's roof, but not just any roof. It's mobile roof that will follow you around. It's got wheels and I even put a motor in it, so you don't have to push it around yourself."

"By golly, that's ingenious!"

Thank you! I needed a good laugh.
