Rain keeps dodging my area. It was supposed to rain yesterday, but it was a beautiful partly cloudy day. I went out for a ride and could see some dark clouds way off in the distance. Nice to get out anyway.

Wish a storm would miss socal. Rained off and on all night, pretty hard at times. Off road excursions would be mud-fests, so reduced to street riding, which isn't as dangerous as usual with fewer cars on the road or some form of ambulatory activity.

Calgary, Alberta
Yesterday forecast said +12C for Saturday (today)
Today being today, the weather temp has not risen above -2C.

I think The Weather Channel has gotten infected. It states tomorrow will be +12C with cloud and sunny breaks. I was really hoping to go out ebiking and fishing today.

Finally getting some rain here. Maybe it will help wash away all the coronaviruses.

:wink:
Are you saying the rain is acidic and toxic, which will kill the coronavirus.

Actually if rain was to just wash away, coronavirus rain would soak into the ground, covering all the farmland, virus water would end up in ground water, and rivers, and eventually the ocean. Everyone would get infected with the China Virus.

The rains have returned, wooo hooo! out of the drought that lasted for 11 months. More like normal weather for this time of the year. Could it be do the loss of activity.

+4C today, wind chill brought it down to +1C, sun was out. Tomorrow about the same, but Wed +10C.
Went fishing today, will do again everyday this week. Rode 25km before I juiced up (for 45 minutes at 8A 36V) at my usual spot for the neighborhood, McDonalds patio with seats, in the shade which slightly sucked, no sun warmth. Obviously closed to walk-in, but Skip The Dish deliveries were popping out of the side door. Drive-Thru popping too.
Rode another 6km to a fishing spot.
Rode another 7km before I needed another charge. 20 minutes @ 7-eleven
Then 3km to home.
Fish sticks were waiting for me to eat, along with one big slab cookie.
