Gale force winds last night have tilted a tree in my backyard. I awoke and it was pouring, but I really felt like riding. The hourly weather forecast predicted two hours without rain, so I put on my cycling gear.
Sometimes the cycling Gods smile at motivation, and as i rode, the sun even made an appearance.
I returned home and it started raining again. Yes, I am feeling Smug.
PS – Years from now historians will call this my “shadows” phase.
