Weather Wimp

Despite a forecast of possible rain, I pulled out from my driveway today on my trusty two-wheeler. Weather here is very unpredictable so I figured the chances of making it to and from work high and dry were pretty good. But about two blocks into the ride, I started seeing lightning flashes in the distance. I'm not afraid of getting wet while riding a bicycle; however, I'm not to fond of the idea of being electrocuted. I had a bad experience as a youth with lightning that has left me very cautious. The funny thing is that we have been in a drought for awhile with no measureable percipitation at our house for several weeks. So in this case I'll claim that "discretion is the better part of valor" and ride another day!
