Several days of scattered rain showers, coupled with allergies/head cold/something wierd, have kept me from biking to work this week. We've had both morning and afternoon downpours, but bright, beautiful sun in the mid-day. So listening to the weather forecast is tres importante!
Also, since last Friday I've had this scratchy throat, stuffy nose, pain in my ears, which is justified by the high pollen count. I finally started taking an over-the-counter allergy medicine (actually behind the counter - I had to show my license and sign for it). I know that sleeping with the windows open doesn't help the condition, but I'm not going to close them and suffer in stuffiness all night.
So the bike will sit inside for the rest of the week. And my goal is to commute gas-free as often as possible starting Monday.
Wishing everyone sunshine and little puffy white clouds!
