Glad the rivers and lakes are full - but its good to see the sun again!
Yeah, I don't think the last week of rain has helped anything, the ground has been saturated for a while. I imagine the kayakers are lovin' it.

Yes we are. Sort of. My other bike is a kayak. Been on more kayak rides than bike rides this year. Got to do something with what Mother Nature throws at you. Ready to MTB more though. Starting to get grown over in moss and mold, not to mention having to cut grass every other sunny day.

Actually, a most of the places I ride are not too bad if you are riding up or down the mountains, it is the low-lying areas that are a mess. The problem I have is that I don't always feel like packing everything up and driving to the trailhead with a 50% chance of thunderstorms. Well, I've started sucking it up and doing it anyway, but it definitely kills some of the motivation for me.

Hopefully I will finish up what I am doing and get out in the next few days. "25% chance of showers" is the new "mostly cloudy".

I've been on more road rides than mt. bike rides this year. :yikes:

No really though, it's been great for the crab grass growing in my garden. Gonna have a real good crop of that stuff this year.

Okay, whining done. We'll probably be begging for rain by mid-September.

Maybe if we did the "no rain" chant like they did at Woodstock...

Taking a vacation

I'll be taking off the next week for some personal time in the tropics.
After the last few weeks I'm all wrung out.
You know what they say, "All Rain and no play...".
