The forecast calls for pain

According to www.noaa.gov, the Sunday forecast is now calling for 100% rain. 100%? You've got to be kidding me. The folks at the weather bureau almost never commit themselves to 100%. So, even though I got my new clipless pedals installed on the Jamis this afternoon, I loaded the Schwinn onto the Mitsubishi's bike rack so I'm ready to go tomorrow morning. It's gonna be a wet one. The official forecast is:

Periods of showers. High around 56. East southeast wind between 14 and 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

Oh well. They don't call it the Ironman for nothing. So if you see me, wet and cold, riding my multicolored Schwinn, introduce yourself. Misery loves company.


Coffee for my breakfast
Shot of whiskey on the side
It's a dark and dreary morning
With the clouds covering up the sky
And the forecast calls for pain

Wurg. Bundle up the bedroll, get that slicker on - 'cause the clouds they look like rain.

Sorry, but your weather report has made my day. It has been so cold here that I have had weather envy.
