Cool, man

I don’t think it broke 75 here today — it has been overcast all day, except when it was pouring down rain. It was kind of nice to get a day here like what we had last weekend in the NC mountains, even if I did get rained on some.

I just finished adjusting the valves on my motorcycle (two were seriously loose and a third was somewhat loose) and putting it back together, so it’s ready for when the rain clears out (which it seems to have done already). Looks like it will be in the 80s all week, with only small chances for rain, so I’m looking forward to enjoying my commute.


  1. Congrats on the weather. Send some this way.

    Congrats also on the motorcycle. Be safe.

  2. Heck, I thought the weather moved west to east — you should have had it before we did.

    Commuting on the bike is mostly safe. I'm either in a line of cars, moving quickly, or in stop&go traffic — so the most dangerous scenario, someone pulling out in front of me, isn’t likely to happen.

    The difference between the car & bike gas mileage is pretty slim — 42 for the bike vs. 40 for the car — but if everyone did something to reduce their fuel consumption by 5%, we’d all be in better shape.


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
