A Proper Soaking

I was about halfway through my lunchtime bike ride today when it started raining. It was earlier than expected, but given the forecast I’d known it was a risk. After waiting for the downpour to settle down a bit I decided to start climbing the hill from Shockoe Bottom back up toward VCU, weather be damned.

The rain varied in intensity for the back half of my ride, but you know what? Once you’re fully soaked, you might as well enjoy the ride. I couldn't get any wetter, but I could be grateful to ride my bike instead of sitting at my computer. I took my glasses off at a stop light (better visibility, ironically) and squelched my way through town until I returned home.
