Thursday 13 June 2013. Too Threatening

Almost got out before the stroke of 5, but then forgot something and then it was 5:04. đŸ˜¦ The temperature was 72 degrees F, and there was a fairly stiff head wind as Rhododendron and I headed north. The sky was covered with a lumpy blanket of clouds, with darker ones to the north. No rising sun-disc show today. Yet, the phone weather information did not

The sky seemed to get darker rather than lighter as time went by. Noticed a feeling of fear about the clouds; it annoys me to be so easily scared by clouds. Just had to start the self-talk (“How bad do you really think it is right now?”), and it was better.

Seems I’m not the only one who has trouble getting out of the house by 5. The streets were empty of pedestrians/cyclists and only a very few cars passed.

Not quite to the Dart plant felt raindrops; did not want Rhododendron’s rust to get worse so headed back.


About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking " on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
