We've been having widely scattered thunderstorms that never got to us, so I got in the habit of ignoring clouds. But Saturday morning my three hour bike ride included almost an hour of light rain. My new Terry mesh tank was great for hot wet weather--didn't absorb water. Sunday I tried to go out on my bike in the morning but I turned around when it started raining heavily when I had gone less than a mile. I did get a good ride in in the evening. This evening it has rained hard here. The water of the lake out our window is orange with mud. We need the rain, unlike the northeast we are near drought--only 18 inches of rain so far this year, where normal is over 29 inches.
