Today is supposed to be rainy ... but right now, it's 8 degrees colder than the hour-by-hour so I am grabbing that silly truck Gazelle on the grounds that if it chills faster, that rain could turn into something else.
Figured out lock laces. Got the Big HOnkin LIght on. Also had the helmet blinkie and one $2.00 string of LEDs and another blinkie on the back. WHen it was locked-in fog I fished out that economy yellow arrow light but by the time chorus let out things were just swirly... glad to have the Xtra 'cause I wanted to go fast 'cause of tha tlittle line of t-storms headed our way. At ORegon & Race a paternal fellow in a truck announces. "Nice lights. Very nice lights." Okay, borderline sanctimonious... I could hear the "unlike those other sinners out there!" Snork... but I'd seen two of 'em already, swirly silhouettes skirting the shadows.
Time to vote!
I impulsively ordered a vinyl rectangle with LED arrows (like what you see for lane closures) and would have draped that over my shoulders like a shawl last night had the fog not cleared.
Today I hopped the gazelle because 36 degrees was too close to 32 for my liking.
