Not that anyone shouldn't be prepared, but . . .
the forecasters have been over-predicting ever since the bad storms in June or July caught them off-guard.
Now everything more than a drizzle is being predicted as a "damaging storm."
This morning my wristwatch barometer hit its lowest reading ever in four years. I biked from Bucktown to Union Station about 6:30 a.m. and it was windy and spitting rain. Opted to take BNSF rather than UP West in order to cut my ride to work from 7 miles to 1 mile. Again, conditions were not bad. Contemplating riding back to Chicago this evening--about 30 miles--in Ogden Avenue corridor to take advantage of the tailwinds. Barometer is starting to climb and sun is shining periodically.
Riders of the storm!
I admit that my bike and I got a lift to the train this morning while it was still pouring. But I rode once out in the burbs and riding both segments on the way home. The ride to the train whooped my @$$, but looking forward to tail winds later.
