Sometimes if I’m not sure it’s raining, I’ll check the “weather porch” to see if drops are actually falling (ie, making splashes on the porch), or if it’s just standing water left over from a previous rainshower. Today, however, that isn’t a problem.
I have to admit – I’m looking forward to leaving this weather behind for a week.
Today I got word that the bike shop on Maui received my bike and they’re putting it together. I’m getting over my brief cold, and hoping that won’t set me back too much when I try to ride Haleakala. My goal is to do it as soon as possible after we get there, Monday or Tuesday, to be sure I do it. After all the logistics and cost of figuring out how to bike there, and all the extra baggage of bike gear, and all those thousands of feet Dad and I rode, I’d better do it!
