Grey Sky in Morning, Biker Take Warning

Sunrise at Collins Road and C Avenue NE.
Rain was in the weather forecast today, but I could not help myself.  I rode.

The clouds to the west looked eerie, but the east was patchy, which made for a pretty sunrise.  I had to give a mid-term exam this morning, and worked for a few hours until noon, but then I decided to head home before any rain had a chance to arrive.

It was a good move.  I was safely napping in my bed when the rain fell—it was a startling surprise to look out around 6 p.m. and see the wet.  Audrey and I had gone out for a quick lunch around 1, but it was only light sprinkles when I put head to pillow.

Well, I’m glad for the rain, even if there was not much.  I hope we get something of a break—I’m on fall break now, and while I have a mountain of grading to do, I would not mind a bike ride or two.

We’ll see.  For now, I guess I’m just grateful I both managed to ride and managed to avoid the wet hours.
