Happy clouds tonight made a drier ride tonight. It was fast. I set a new personal best smashing my 2015 best by 36 seconds. Wow. Perhaps the new 25 cc tires helped. Or the bagel and cream cheese this morning. Yup. Happy clouds.

More controlled burns today
GLENDORAPD: Forestry is conducting another controlled burn at Johnstone peak in case you see smoke in the Foothills.

It was a dark and stormy night. Heather arrived at the beginning of spluttering droplets. The clouds were grey and ladened with moisture. We waited a few minutes and the droplets decreased. Look to the blue sky in the south. We rode. We rode up the mountain in spite of the wet. I didn't think of my camera in the bento bag. It got too wet near 11.39. Downhill was scary. The brakes were hydro planing. The droplets harder and faster. It was the slowest descent. Lightening flashed. Thunder cracked over head. Finally back at my house the clouds let loose the hardest rain. I wiped down my bike.
