Wish I had not worn it on the way in--too darned hot.  But I think we will need it going home.  And then there is Thursday and Friday. ;-)

Lovely ride in this morning – no rain whatsoever. Windy, though. I brought all my rain gear.

Watch out this afternoon, though. The NWS issued a flood watch, so the streets could have a lot of standing water.

Yeah, I almost called in "sick" today. Stoopid meetings.

I looked at the radar this morning and saw Chicago was between two big patches of rain, but a big swath of rain and storms down in central Missouri looks like it will be coming this way later today and cross the whole city.

I don't mind falling snow like we should have tomorrow, but rain is no good.  Hopefully this is the last day for a while where I take the train.

Really? I'll take rain over snow any day.

Rain's messy.  Snow is pretty.  Plus it doesn't soak my wool sweaters and I hate wearing plastics.

Mind you, I'm talking about falling snow, assuming the ground is wet and slippery in both cases.  Fenders take care of that.

I'm with Adam.  Rain won't keep me off my bike.  But sometimes snow will.

Looks like we'll get a little bit of everything this week.

I suspect you will be happy with your decision on the way home.

I suspect my ride home (going north) will be easier with the wind behind my back

If we get that rain, I know I will.  The last time we got heavy rain I did not have the rain gear and I was wet and unhappy when I got home!

Concur. Hate riding in the rain. Least favorite. Much prefer snowfall. 

Rode this morning but will have to bus back due to flat tire! Was a sad sound mid way to work and I knew my fate then and there.
