Well, not stormy, and not so dark, but SOME headlights and streetlights were still on at six in the morning when I headed out, after consuming a measuring cup of Albertson's Bran Flakes.
I rode east for 1.5 hours (what's that in metric?), then I stopped, snapped this pic, then turned around and headed back.
This is rather near Alpine Blvd. and Dunbar Lane. A good place to turn around, as it is the TOP of a hill.
Heading up (west-ish) the little (depending on how one is feeling!) grade on Olde Highway 80 after the Los Coches intersection, I came upon this HORRIBLE sight!!
Some fiend dumped this poor Long John on the side of the road. So sad!
The waste, the waste.
It was covered in ants, so I was not tempted.
Here's something I ran across while researching donuts, the Brown Bobby. Never heard of it, but it looks good! I feel deprived that my mother did not have one of these machines. Although she DID have a waffle iron, for which I am grateful!
I stopped at that memorial I keep mentioning. I made note of the name, it is Ralph Simpson. The year of death is 2004. I can't find anything on the web, so the circumstances are a mystery to me.
