The calm before the storm

Early this morning the National Weather Service issued a special weather alert for our area. Our cool ocean temperatures can't support a hurricane, but the remnants of Hurricane Oho were predicted to bring heavy rain and wind to 40mph to the area early this afternoon. A local TV station repeated the warning.

 The morning was dead calm. I went about the yard battening down the hatches in anticipation of a big blow. After making sure that everything was secure I rewarded myself for a job well done with a ride on the fixie to fetch a maple bar and chocolate milk. It was surprisingly warm, nearly 70 degrees at 10 AM.


I got my treats and consumed them in the parking lot.  It was such a beautiful morning that I went for some bonus miles riding around the neighborhood. 


 At 1PM, right on cue, the wind started swaying the tree branches around, and dark clouds began rolling in. I decided I'd best get back home.


Within a half hour of arriving back home the nice morning had morphed into this:

It was a nice ride while it lasted.
