It has rained 11 out of the 13 days of October so far here in North Central Texas.
Looks like its going to stop for a few days anyway. I dont mind riding home in the rain
but I DONT RIDE to work IN the rain unless its REAL patchy and lately it has not been.
No seat time on the bike this month so far except for last friday night out to eat.

About the same here, got a clear day today after starting out the morning with heavy fog. Hoping Friday will be clear enough for the start of my trip to PA.

Did an escort for a lady that got killed by a deer last week not more than 3 miles from my house. Went into the church for the service with fog still, came out to a perfect blue sky full of sunshine. forecast for 2 more days of rain starting tomorrow morning.

They don't have to go to Norway to enjoy snow, just come to Wyoming. We have at least 10 inches on the ground.

Yea, after working last night, when I got home, I was kinda tired. But I decided to go riding for about an hour. After being out for about 30 minutes, it started to rain. So I turned around and headed back. That was around 9 this morning. It's been raining ever since. This stationary front is not forecasted to clear up until Friday. The weekend looks really promising; sunshine, 60F, and no rain!

It has been raining since April here. Wettest summer I can remember and it has been cooler than normal tooo. Makes me wonder if this trend is going to continue through the winter.

While Going south on RT 219 out of Buffalo to PA and on, I noticed serious flooding damage with no stream in sight. My day was sunny and dry for a great ride. Met up with three people on rental Harleys from Italy too. They missed their MotoGussies.

I think our time here in Florida is coming. With that El-Nino going on it means a very light hurricane season, which we've thankfully seen, but a wet cool winter.
Just a couple years back it rain so much that the construction crews couldn't dig footers fast enough and pour them.
Dig one day, and call for the inspection. That night it would rain and wash it all in. Inspection would fail.
But then, we need lots of rain to get the aquafier back to normal.

Rain, freezing rain, rain mixed with snow, snow.... Have had it all, pretty much daily, for the last two weeks here. Temps from the low 20's - mid 30's. This weekend is supposed to be mostly clear and in the mid/upper 30's. We shall see. Some trees have lost most of their leaves, bugs are gone, and the 'Ol 'Wing is arthritic.

Fortunately it has a co-worker to brighten its spirits, and surgery is on the horizon. :)
