Yesterday’s weather forecast was calling for strong wind and possible thunderstorms. I didn’t want to ride the entire distance to work in a headwind, so I drove to Jeffersonville, and rode across the bridge.
The headwind was strong, but for such a short ride it wasn’t a big deal. I had to ride back across the bridge and back at lunch time. The northbound trip was fast and fun with the tailwind.
At the end of the day, the wind was stronger. It was a tailwind, but it was strong enough to be frightening. I could accelerate easily without pedaling. While stopped at a light behind a truck, I watched the wind yank a plastic vent off of the truck. I was a bit worried the guy driving the truck would think I did something.
I managed four bridge-crossings with barely any rain while I was out. That worked out well.
What didn’t work out well, is I came home to a house with no power again. Apparently the wind took some power lines down somewhere.
It was reasonably warm, so I stayed home in my dark house. I cooked on the grill, and went to bed early.
I still didn’t have power this morning, and didn’t ride as the wind was still howling quite a bit when I got up at 5:00 a.m.
I haven’t been riding as much as I would like, but my weight loss is still progressing nicely. Today’s weigh-in was 207 lbs. I have lost 89.4 lbs.
