^ Holy crap, that's alotta rain. It's been raining here since Sunday too but it let up last night and it's beautiful out there today. The bike is outside in the parking lot as we speak. The high today is only 82 and there's no humidity.

Hang in there dude, can't rain all the time.

We got about 3 inches between Sunday and Monday. I would have needed a wetsuit.

Got home from my week long conference yesterday at about 1:30PM and it was only 87 so I took the bike for a nice long ride. Nice break from the 100's we've been having. The weather is fixing to change. It will probably go from the 100's to rainy days in the 80's for a while...

Slim Vulcan are you at Ft. Drum? My friend has a camp in the Water Town area of NY. He went up yesterday and the road was closed to his camp, covered with water. He had to take a woods road in from the back. They must have gotten some too.

Hmmm, I have a rainsuit AND a wetsuit. I wonder if I would ever wear scuba gear on the bike??!! The 5mm would be sweet when it's 40 degrees and pouring!
