It's been raining for almost a week. Before it started raining, we were in drought conditions. In three days, it rained as much as it rained in the past three months! We are no longer in drought conditions. We're not expected to see sun until Saturday.
October 8, 2005 - my parents' back porch
My parents are away on vacation. Just my luck that they go away on vacation and then it rains for a week. I swear they must have some good karma going their way. Sometimes things just go right for them. It's always been kinda superficial, though. I hope whatever good karma they have stored up doesn't get exhausted by their current lifetime, which is 100% material. And when I say 100%, I mean 100%. They haven't a spiritual or introspective bone in their bodies.
If the sun does come out on Saturday, be sure that I'll be out on my bike.
September 28, 2005 - Main St., Fort Lee. Shot while riding.
Coming from California, I never thought of a season when riding was unpleasant. I only didn't ride when it rained, I don't like getting wet. But even in the Winter, if it wasn't raining, I rode. But here, it's going to get cold. I'll try it, but I'm not looking forward to it. Although riding in the snow, hmmm...
