No thanks. As much as I love (as everyone here loves) to bitch about the weather in the PNW, we at least don't get monster storms rushing at us. And truth be told, we've had quite a lovely summer this year, unlike last year. And it shows no sign of abating either, which is a pleasant surprise.
So yes, I'll take the weather here over the weather in the Gulf. Especially this last weekend. My friend garlandj and I went on his first big overnight motorcycle ride on his own bike -- a 500 mile loop through the North Cascades in Washington with an overnight at Sun Mountain Lodge outside of Winthrop, WA. It was a wonderful relaxing weekend, riding some roads that were even new to me on part of this route, and enjoying the warmth and the spectacular scenery. And not worrying about hurricanes. It likely will be the last weekend overnight bike trip this year as the summer is widning down, but who knows? Maybe if it stays this nice I can sneak in another weekend ride.
