That was some serious wind yesterday. I was going to get out of the truck at Worst Lie (best buy) and I just waited til the wind died down. I didn't want my wheelchair blowing across the parking lot like a runnaway basket...lol.

I thought it was fun riding in the wind. Didn't like the dust though - comes right up into the helmet.

So I'm sitting in my office at the plant in Pasadena when I hear something that sounds like thunder at around 4:30 PM. I pack up my computer and head out the door only to be greeted by the biggest and dirtiest rain drops I have seen in years and then the wind picked up blowing this nasty dust/ chemical mixture all over me and my bike. It really sucked. I don't mind rain and I don't mind driving on 225, 610 or I-10 during rush hour traffic but I hate doing em together.

Damm, sounds like a bit of nasty weather rolled through town.
