Well I WAS getting ready

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

But then I heard this rumble. Looked outside. Saw a flash of lightning. Keep in mind this was NOT a recreational ride, this was a work commute. Ewww...

Sky looked like this over the houses to the West (where our weather comes from):

Came inside. Checked the weather radar. It looked like this:

Hmmm. Drowned rat is not a good work look. And while the forecast may SAY 20%, if I win that lottery, I win that lottery. We've all shoveled "partly cloudy" of a winter day, huh?

So... change of plan. Drive to work today. Do something active AFTER work. Write this blog & sip another Spark mug of coffee.

LIFE is good, even with rumbling skies. Spark on. emoticon

    1ooo% agree to changing plans! Good the change was before you left for work. Otherwise, if a thunderstorm had come up suddenly when you were part way there, 'drowned rat' look may have happened.

    That radar kind of makes me nostalgic for good old great plains thunderstorms - flashy, exciting, and soon past. And it looks like it's timed just right to destroy your bike commuter plan. Oh, well. On to Plan B!

    Have a good day and send some of that rain to San Diego; we need it badly.

    Nothing like a Spark of lightening to make us rethink our day. I think it will be indoor activity for me. Have a sparking good day!

    Good choice. After yesterday's weather, one can never be too careful. There are many here that still don't have power. We lucked out; our lights stayed on. Have a great day!
