Rain

Today is the first day of the [school] year that I had to suit up in all my rain gear. Jacket, pants, gortex socks, fender. Dumb. Unfortunately I was unable to fully appreciate the beauty of this morning. My alarm went of at 630am, my head hurt and I could hear the soft patting of the rain from my warm bed. I also have taken to wearing my glasses more often because of my lack of sleep cycle and I honestly can't remember the last time i rode in the rain with my glasses but it sucks.

However, now that I am warm, and I have some tasty espresso I can reflect on my commute. I didn't seem to notice the leaves change until Justine brought it up. I then realized that it was amazing out; half of my ride, wherever I go from my house is like a ridiculous calender picture. The maple tree in front of the house is especially amazing. I'm glad that I noticed this before it started to rain, I fear now that its started to rain the leaves wont last very long. Though the upside to that is there will be huge piles of wet leaves to do some epic skids on.

So my ride this morning wasn't that bad. Once the act is over I can appreciate the lore of the Northwest. This will be what gets me through the Winter. Though around March it will get old, it always does.
