A Rare September Monsoon Ride
Heading West on the River Bike Path toward home.
With no headwind out of the West, I get to fly like a falcon--but rain is on the way!
Big clouds rolling in with thunder and lightning!
Usually, our Monsoons are over by now--no one forecast the storm for this late afternoon. A great surprise and a beautiful and powerful show! I'm glad I had a front row seat. A very light rain kept me cool, and the tailwind was a much needed relief from always the unforgiving headwind for the ride homeward. I waited under the shelter of the entrance to the Y as the rain poured only minutes after I arrived.
