I Would Have Invited Him In ....

Something woke me up very early, around 4:45. I knew the sun was coming up and I opened the curtain, just a crack, to check the weather ... that's when I saw him for the first time, slinking quietly past my window. It was still grey and foggy. I went back to bed and forgot all about him.

Six o'clock arrived. I started preparations. I hadn't checked the tire pressure in a couple of days. It was time. Just as I finished, before I even had the gauge put away, the clouds opened and the rain arrived.

That's when I saw him again ... and I had to smile. Only a cat would consider a cushion on a porch swing a harbor in a storm. I would have invited him in but for the look he gave me. It said, "Go away, can't you see I am napping?" I went back inside and made coffee. I booked another day.
It's been raining on and off all day. The fog has lifted and that seems to have helped the temperature. The radar shows severe weather along my entire route until at least tomorrow when it should hit the east coast.
I took advantage of a break in the weather. When I got back from my walk he came to say hello.
Now it's thundering and I am trying to write this post on my tablet. Something has happened to my ultrabook charger - it's not. This is not fun! Arrrgh! Rain or shine - I've got to get outta Dodge!


  1. Karen, the law of averages must level the field. You will no doubt have some great riding weather soon.

    Are you studying routes south?

    1. It hasn't been all that bad David ... the first 11 days was perfect ... just taking awhile for this system to move on.

  2. In the last picture the cat seems to think: alright, take that bloody picture already.

    1. He does kind of have that look about him Sonja.
