Riding The Storm Out: I Needed To Clean That Anyway

Back when Mongo lived in Miami, during the Summer months, you could set your watch by the afternoon thunderstorms. Every day around three a storm would pop up, dump some rain, and then it would clear up. The rest of your day was good to go.

Here in the ATL, the summer storms are random and frequent. Just when the ol' Doppler is telling you the coast is clear, thirty minutes later there is a monsoon ruining your ride...Which is what happened to me today.

I've only ridden once since the "Noah's Ark" edition of the 23/2300 Hammerfest last Monday. I did a medium forty on LPE on Thursday, and because of rain and work all week, today was to be another 40+ ride. Mongo only got in six miles...with two of those miles in the kind of weather that shuts down an airport.
