Tropical Storms Suck!!!(9 posts)

Today really sucks...no ride due to Tropical Storm Fey. I usually ride with and expect strong winds, its part of living near the South Coast. But whats upwith this? I hardly ever watch TV anymore and this one snuck up on me. Just think, if Fey gains 14mph and gets upgraded to a hurricane, I get 12 hrs of "double-time and a half hurricane pay". YAHOO!!! Hope I can drive home in the morning...

Riding looks bleak this weekend in Houston.
Bleak riding prospects? Yes but, so much more...hycobob

Bleak isn't quite descriptive enough of a word for the riding prospects this weekend. How about dismal, austere, dark, dour, grim, hard, harsh, severe, stark, depressing, black, blue, cheerless, desolate, dreary, gloomy, glum, joyless, cold?, forbidding, somber, and last but certainly not least...tenebrific. I really like the last one best of all.

I don't know whats worse right now; the weather or the Bon Jovi's football show on TV. I knew there was a reason I don't watch TV that much any more...except OLN and the History Channel of course.

The winds are already down by 60% (less than 15 knots sustained) this morning. The rain has tapered off to scattered thunderstorms. Austin is getting the brunt of the storm now. It looks like tomorrow's century might be on. If not, it will be postponed for a week and run on September 15th.
For those in the Houston area who are interested, look here:

I live a couple of blocks from there, but somehow did't realize the ride was comming up so soon. I've never ridden it. The weather looks pretty good today, perhaps I'll do the metric.
