Mother Nature Needs Meds

Wind is public enemy #1. Well, at least in my world. When I was on night shift, I could always rely on a headwind going to work, and a headwind coming home. Many a curse word has been muttered (and some made up), only to be drowned out by Mother Nature’s exhale. I’d rather ride in a hailstorm.

Oddly enough, she also knows when it is time to drive to work. I try to commute by bike five days a week, but some days I wake up and just don’t feel it. These days are few and far between, and this morning was one of those days.

In this neck of the woods it is rare to have rain in the morning, but instead it typically falls in the afternoon through the middle of the night. Maybe it’s the effect of the rain on my sleep (doesn’t it make everyone sleep better?), but this morning I woke up and just wanted to sleep for the rest of the day. It should be noted that I usually get a solid eight a night and get up at 5:00 a.m. without issue every day, even weekends.

Waddup, Ma Nat? Why you messin’ with my schedule?

    I’ve ridden through a hailstorm in Colorado. It hurts. A lot. I’ll take the wind, Viking :-)

    That’s why I love windsurfing now too – gives me something to do on those days when the wind is howling, through usually that means biking a few miles in the headwind to get there!
