Sat. Sun

Let us recap the week:
Monday: Holiday, rode bike.
Tuesday: Work, rode bike.
Wednesday: Work, rained midday, could have, but, no ride bike.
Thursday: Work, dentist, no ride bike.
Friday: Work, chauffeured, rain, no ride bike.
Saturday: Blessed mostly sunny, rode bike.
Sunday: It's gonna rain!
We are at above normal rain totals for the season, from barely to quite-a-lot, depending on where in the county one is. There is the normal flash flood warning for the next 24 hours as the next storm moves in. But I got my ride in for the day!

Picked up 7 cans today, not NEARLY as many as I saw the other day. Picked up 3 can earlier in the week, commuting, for a total of 10 cans for the week.

Rode up and over the Mission Gorge Hump instead of going on the Fr. J. Serra Dogwalking Trail. Good thing, too, as I found two can at the crest of the hump!

Lots of bikers out today, exchanged "Hi!" with a couple. Later on a cyclist going the other way on a frontage road yelled something to me, but with the 21 mph wind blast in my ears I could hear nothing but static.

So I smiled and headed home.

I've been watching the state snowpack summary recently, since that's the best indicator of whether we'll really be experiencing drought conditions this summer -- all that snow on the ground is like a giant reservoir. (And if global warming persists, we'll need bigger reservoirs to catch it as rain during the winter...)
