|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.
