Well, Mother Nature sure tore through South Western BC yesterday, resulting in fallen trees and power outages and damage to propertY. And we all stayed home. Or not. I did a dumb thing which was decide to ride my bicycle from my East Van home to my dentist appointment in Burnaby. Thinking it wise as the monsoons touched down and the gale force winds ripped through the city—to perhaps take the bus or ask a friend for a ride in a car to my appointment—I instead asked myself, ARE YOU MADE OF SUGAR? (Yes) my soul voice said, however, “No!” is what Ursula who is frontin’ hard bellowed. I “rode” my delicate road bike into the wind and rain and realized that to protect my corneas from flying debris, it was safer to ride with eyes mostly closed. I “rode” through puddles that were deep enough to reach my peddles. I “rode” around fallen trees and branches and I leaned like crazy into the wind and rain.
