storm's a comin'


it is always a troubling feeling to be out on your bike and be racing nature to get back to some kind of shelter. a photo taken in the opposite direction would have shown a bright sunny sky, but these clouds at the mountains were looming. fortunately we made it back home last saturday before this one hit (ryan and meredith know how to pedal hard).

Glad you made it back safely.

at times, it seemed as if it were raining cows and horses out there!

I noticed the dichotomy driving down yesterday---to my left or behind me, black, uuuugly clouds. To my right or ahead of me, bright, sunny weather, as if it had no idea the black ugly clouds even existed!

Glad the ride went okay. Nothing quite like pedaling at sprint speed to beat the downpour!
