Did You Get Caught in the Chicago Storm on Your Bike This Morning?

We returned this weekend from a lovely family vacation up north where we swam in clear lake waters, slept-in late, rode our bikes and basically enjoyed perfectly warm days, cool nights, and no alarm clocks.  This morning we forced ourselves back into our work routines and made our preparations to head out the door.  Andrew kissed me goodbye and headed down the stairs to grab the Yuba Mundo for his ride to work.   As you can see by the photo below, he made it a couple of miles before BOOM – torrential downpours and 75-mph winds – really, read this article if you think I’m exaggerating – it knocked out power to 850,000 people!

He locked it up and went the rest of the way to work by bus.
What about you? Did you get caught in the rain, wind and hail this morning?
