I suppose that folks grow weary of cloudy skies and refreshing rainfall the I way I grow weary of glaring sunshine and hot blowing dust day after day. But today’s outing was especially delightful for me. Slightly cooler air came sweeping into north Texas early this morning. More importantly, the skies were cloudy and rainy.
I rode out to the “just now re-opened after the May flood” State Park for a fresh cup of coffee in the woods, and I was able to use some of my gear that I rarely use. My rain shell keep my body comfortable in hours of showers. My saddle cover kept my leather saddle dry, and my fenders kept the spray off my backside.
It’s still late summer in Texas for a few more weeks, but it was mighty refreshing out there today.
