When the Sky Opened Up

Yesterday we went for a 10 mile bike ride in the morning.  It felt good to get back on the bike and we really enjoyed the warming of the sunshine.  In fact, when we rode into shade it really became cold.  Fortunately, there was plenty of sun.

Then we watched the two NFL games which I totally called backwards.  Baltimore missed a rushed field goal and that ended their season.  And San Francisco had two key turnovers that sent them home.  So the super bowl where the two head coaches are brothers will have to wait for another year.

Only one (real) football game left.  Meanwhile, I will start getting ready for the semi-pro season to officiate.  It will start late March and run into July.  I was notified today that I have been selected to be on a state-wide committee (9 of us) to write the officials mechanics manual for Washington.  (Mechanics has to do with what we do on field and how we cover plays).  It will be a fun challenge.

During the night last night it really poured!  I think it was around 3am or so, but the heavy rain seemed to last for over 30 minutes.  Some good wind gusts of 30mph or so too.

This morning we woke up to a gentle rain shower.  The showers continued on and off again all morning but it has been dry since about noon and now the sky is clearing.  The days ahead include clear skies and temps going into the 70s. 

We really didn’t do much today other than go to the store and to In & Out Burger for lunch.  We don’t have In & Out up where we live so we have to visit it once while we are here.

I hear ya on the In 'n' Out burger. We always like to visit at least once when we go south. Good luck with your writing assignment and your upcoming season.
