Thunder and rain and trying to bike home
September 11, 2019 2:44am CST
Yesterday I looked at the weather report and it was supposed to rain for most of the day today, so I planned to drive. Today, in the morning, I looked at the weather report, and it was supposed to be sunny until 4:00 and rain around 7:00 pm. Here it is 4:30, when I am supposed to head home, and right as I walked out the door there were huge drops that had just started and a big roll of thunder. Now I'm hanging out at school waiting either for it to quit or for it to last long enough that I'll decide to take the bus home. At least I have options. What options do you have for going to work? I can drive, take the city bus, ride my bike or (if I have time) walk. (I hardly ever do that.)

It is awful to cycle home in the pouring rain. In the days before I learned how to drive I had a challenge getting to and from work. When I taught at a school by the coast I cycled to the train station which was 2 miles distance away, then I took a train to Dover and the another train to Folkestone. Then I had to cycle another mile to the school. I was pleased when I got a teaching post as a school in a village close to Canterbury. I cycled 12 miles a day to get there and back. Even better it was to get a teaching post in Canterbury itself. It was a 6 mile journey there and back. One time I took a longer route and it poured down with rain. When it brightened up I saw a rainbow.
