Well this sucks

Rain Sunday night, Monday, Tuesday, today, and up to tomorrow evening!? C'mon Mama Nature, cut us some slack! It's Spring!!!! This weekend is supposed to be miraculous though. Anyone plan on being out riding? I have a wedding to go to but I'm thinking 'bout taking the bike...

I been ridin a lil "in between the drops"...for some reason, a lotta the real bad storms bypass me (except for snow) and hit on the flats on the other sides of my east and west mountains. No rain today, rode about 70 miles. No real rain for tomorrow, except for a "chance t-storm" in the afternoon. And I'll prolly be riding down to the next county on Sun to see my Mom for Moms Day.

LOLOL!!!! I'm seeing stock pipes, you should be aight.

Well it cleared up earlier than anticipated. It's partly cloudy now and not suppose to rain the rest of the weekend. I'll take that any day. Julz' uncle died though so now instead of just the wedding, I have a funeral tomorrow morning and afternoon, a rehersal dinner (2 hours away) tomorrow night, a wedding Saturday, and the reception Saturday night. I'm busier now than when I was working full time and in school!! Whoooo doggy!!!

Maybe I can sneak some riding in on Sunday...
