So let's talk about things aligning.
This morning I got up and it was raining. Not really a big deal, I was prepared. I had the fender on my bike ready, and just had to gather and don rain gear.
However, about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way to BART, I almost lost control of mu bike as I started to shimmy. My back tire had gone flat.
Still, things aren't terrible, The rain is minimal, and I make it to BART just in time to get on the train. Also, the walk could have been so much worse if I'd worn the rain jacket I'd planned to instead of the waxed canvas jacket that Jennifer talked me into.
Then we went one stop, and held at the station for ten minutes because the train ahead of us had door troubles, and we had to single track around it.
The walk from BART to work wasn't too bad. It only rained on me twice.
So, I'm now sitting at the office waiting for the bike to dry so I can do some work on it. Also, I'm soaked in sweat from walking in rain gear.
But hey, it could always be worse.
