The calm before the tropical weather advisory

I really wish it would just rain already. It’s been three weeks since I last rode my bike to work. We’ve had three weeks of high rain probabilities and sporadic engagements that require my car during the day. Yet the last several days have been mostly sunny, and it’s driving me bonkers. The sun has been shining in my window all morning, uninterrupted, mocking me.

Don’t you just hate it when celestial bodies mock you?

Hope is not lost though. Weather professionals across the broadcast spectrum are predicting some tropical weather in the next couple of days. With any luck I’ll be sitting in front of a window on Friday watching a torrential down pour; flush with wisdom knowing it was a good day not to be on a bike. Until then I think I’ll just draw the shades and pretend that I didn’t outsmart myself again today.
