Rainy Windy Week
The rain has finally subsided after four days. It not only put a crimp in riding but also allowed the fallen leaves to get out of hand somewhat.
Yesterday afternoon another of those big cargo ships docked. There are hundred of trailer trucks lined up to hook up one of the boxes from the ship.
The temperatures are still pretty mild, which is not unusual for this area. Having worked outside for so many years I can testify that there are only 10-15 bitter cold days annually. The only problem with bike commuting is lingering effects of snow. Usually the sidewalks are a mess and the road shoulders are loaded with muck, which makes riding in traffic too hazardous most times. This will be my first winter commuting on home turf and time will tell how it goes. (the last 10 years have been a car/bike commute 40 miles away. )
