I'm no Weatherman but...

I don't think they should ever forecast a 0% chance of rain.


This insight came to me this morning, as I was about to leave for work. I had finished my shower and walked into the other room to continue my beauty regimen (oh yeah). It sounded like my shower spontaneously came back on, but it was really the sudden deluge outside.

Great, I thought, the Taco Ride is toast.

I didn't think it was supposed to rain, so I pulled up They said there was a 0% chance of rain, which was as a matter of fact 100% wrong.

Don't you think there should be a minimum of at least 5% chance rain to account for the i-dunno factor?

This uncertainty principal is depicted here by the Underpants Gnomes of South Park

(sometimes its odd the things you talk about after a Taco Ride)

Speaking of Gnomes...Gnomefest is quickly approaching. It looks like a pretty good contingent of Iowa freaks will be headed north to the Land of Delicious Cheese (you might call it Wisconsin) to camp, ride, party, ride, party and repeat over a two day hippie dippy lovefest (not like-that, ya pervert).

I believe veteran of last year Billy "the stolen" Gnome will be making another run. Last time he had a bit of a rough go, so hopefully things work out better for him this time around.

I hear Gnomefest is a "singlespeed celebration" meaning if you bring a geared bike it might have something, like a peddle or a grip or a wheel, go temporarily missing overnight as Gnomes do not like gears (or gnears) at their Fest.

It is not wise to anger the Gnomes.

Looking forward to having you and your crew at Levis Trow Mounds. Btw, take a look at the new stunts that were just added. GF6 just keeps getting better and better.
