Re: Finally the rain stopped!

Finally got to do some outdoor activity today.
I was almost ready to put on a lifevest with all the rains we have had lately.
I know most are having the same weather, but damn.
It poured non-stop from 7pm-4am lastnight; after light rain for the prior 3 days.

But this morning with the grace of a higher authority, we had sunlight all day
So my girl and I biked & biked & biked.(11 miles of hardass riding, but it was bliss)

Any1 else enjoy their last day of this holiday?

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

I racked up about another 100 miles or so. It was a good time!

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

I actually went in to work for a few hours today and have been catching up on things that normally get passed up.

No fun for me today.

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

We rode the big loop today. I think I did my fastest cornering ever. The temp was perfect and the rain stayed south all day long. We had an Agusta MV an Aprila MilleR a Ducati 916, monster, an R1, 954 and 2 RC 51s. Yummy!

yesterday it was just me in the z06 with two other cars.
A Porche Carerra and a Scuby. That little Scuby turns like a snake but it cant power out of the corners like the other cars. I took some pretty cool in-car and outboard videos and am transferring them to DVD.

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

Well, the dams weather looked good for Sunday. So, Sat night I rode to my buddies house in Waldorf Md., 3.5hrs. Crashed and we planned to hit the 211 and the 33 to Elkins, wv. Woke up checked the weather and it looked like rain. I decided to head back to hang with the family. Luckily i brought my rain suit. Man did it rain. I have only 1 other time riddden in rain like that. That also was a memorial day weekend in 97. Boots and gloves were soaked. Rain suit worked Bitchn'. Anyway, at least I was on my bike, and actually enjoyed my ride home down the 17. I had fun.

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

Nope, rain ruined the entire weekend. That and the famous Pocono fog that pretty much shut down both of our track days. Bummer. Hope June is a bit drier on the weekends!

I was in the swimming pool/lifeguard industry for almost 5 years. Never once had a completely dry Memorial Day weekend.

Re: Finally the rain stopped!

Saturday morning I went skiing (snow skiing) with my buddy one last time. Saturday afternoon was boating. Sunday had a nice ride alone, then Monday had a BBQ with the family and spent some time screwing around on my ATVs.
Hot and no rain all weekend.
