I drove from Winona back to Topeka last night, trying to make it in time for a ride. But it was raining when I got back. This morning the TradeWind Energy team is supposed to be doing our annual school talk/giveaway at a local Lawrence elementary school, but it is raining again/still. I’m not sure how that is going to work. We might be inside?
Anyway, I looked at the forecast and 5 out of the next 7 days it is supposed to rain. Guess that is normal for May. Thought it was April showers bring May flowers?
We only get around 35 inches of rain a year total, but it usually comes in big dumps. Not the 1/8 of an inch Seattle or Portland gets. I love spring thunderstorms, they really cleans the air.
I’m still planning on going to Lake Wilson tomorrow to race MTB on Sunday. The course is technical enough that it deserves as much pre-riding as possible, but that sometimes just wears you out.
I’m not sure what I’m doing next weekend for Memorial Day. Trudi is going to Winston-Salem after Tour of California and wants me to bring Tucker down there. Then there are lots of race options here, with Quad Cities being the norm, then a MTB race, The Growler, in Gunnison that Vincent is doing, and also another Flyover Series race in Minneapolis.
Okay, I have to get going. I hate these early morning deals. I’m not really a morning guy until I have to be one. Then I sort of enjoy it.
