Colorado Weather

Thursday, 19JUN08: I meant to post this entry last week but things went crazy in a hurry at work which was my destination the evening I took this shot of a thunderhead cloud formation.

I rode under this sucker, along its eastern fringes and was briefly hailed on by big soft pieces of hail. They still stung, even through the kevlar mesh material of my Cycleport gear! There I was, on Brigitta, no windshield and darkening skies, trying to keep her upright on the wet roads. Fun huh?

However, the hail did not last long and I heard later that it was really more pronounced further to the south of me so I lucked out.

Ah, the joys of spring/summer in Colorado.

I've been on a hampster wheel for a while. While I've been busy I see you've obtained a backup bike, huh? I had an R90 but hated having my pants cuffs smell like gasoline from being stuffed under the carbs. Now I have to go back and read all the rest of the posts!
