Wet day on the scooter

Woo – that was a wet ride to work on the scooter! It's been raining in Fort Collins since yesterday, including my ride home Wednesday and all night. Everything was good until just east of the intersection of Horsetooth and Shields. Then the bike lane quickly became a river! I plowed into a few inches of water and then merged with traffic and stayed in the main lane until Stover. That was the only dicey bit.

One high note – the fleece face mask did a great job protecting my nose, cheeks and lips from raindrop pelting. Can't say my Home Depot work gloves are the best for rainy conditions, but any gloves would've been soaked and it wasn't all that cold this morning. Another fun day of “extreme” scootering.
