The donut threat level is currently Sprinkles

My mom always said "Red sky at morning, sailors take warning." And the sky was certainly red this morning heading in to work. I took this shot from Park Ave, just after I'd ridden up the exit ramp from the Greenway. I thought it was a pretty cool shot.

The sailor's warning came true as a(nother) storm washed over the twin cities this morning and into the evening. It was a lovely rain, not too windy and all in all an enjoyable if wet commute home. Until I noticed something strange. Down near my knees. There were white patches developing on my knees. Lather, almost.

I didn't think much of it at first. But when it started running down my legs and onto my socks, I had to stop for a photo. This way I'll have something to show my doctor. Perhaps he can write me a prescription for one of those fancy drugs I see advertised on the TV. But this just ain't right.

In the rite of wash, rinse, repeat; don't forget the rinse the second time...

Nice photo. Sunrise is wonderful.

Suds? Right.

The sunrise shot is lovely indeed. Great job.

As for the suds, I am at a loss for words.

Suds eh? That's what happens when you keep your beer in the bottle cage while riding, they tend to foam up.

Is that a bar of soap in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
