Rain receding

I woke at 6 this morning to the sound of heavy rain, and the sound made me peel myself out of bed to rescue my newspaper from the front walk before the water seeped through its plastic bag covering. Ah, I beat the water! Paper rescued, time for a little more sleep... The next time I opened my eyes it was nine o'clock. Wow. I can't remember the last time I slept that late. But I know I needed the sleep, so I have no regrets about missing a few hours of my Sunday morning.

I expected a rainy day today, and I almost welcomed it because I knew that I needed a rest day. Most of the day fell into that category, but when the pavement dried and the sun peeked out from behind a cloud in the middle of the afternoon I couldn't resist taking a short ride. It was still cloudy, and the weather forecast called for isolated thunderstorms, so I chose to wander in the general vicinity of my home. Still, I managed a 27-mile loop, and the roads stayed dry.

As I sit and write, I'm listening to raindrops hitting the pavement once again, listening to the distant rumble of thunder. And I'm hoping for dry roads in the morning to match the weather forecast that calls for a string of partly cloudy and very reasonable temperature days. My bike wants to ride to work tomorrow...
