Rain, Rain, Go Away...

So yesterday at lunch it was sunny and up into the fifties, and I figured that I might finally get a chance to ride after work. Then about four the clouds rolled in and it started raining. This morning it's still raining, and the wind is whistling. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.

The Dodgers and Padres played the first ever MLB exhibition game in China last night. Nobody won. The score was 3-3 after nine, but they didn't continue because they wanted to make sure they had enough pitchers left for today's game.

I spend most of my work week lunch hours parked down next to KOQU, where I have lunch, read, and watch the airplanes take off and land. There's one plane, a Piper Cherokee, parked very near my usual spot that I didn't see fly all winter. Thursday, someone finally showed up and started preflighting it. He did all the usual stuff, and then he did something I'd never seen before. He pulled his car up next to the plane, pulled out a set of jumper cables, and jump started the Piper. I guess he really hadn't flown it in a while.
