RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! AND IT DID!

Rain was forecasted and I had pretty much accepted that I would not be able to go out for a ride today nor tomorrow either for that matter. It was not raining when I got up this morning but I looked at the weather radar and saw a bunch of rain off to our west headed my way. So I did not attempt to venture out. As the morning was passing along I noticed that there was still no rain but that radar image scared me off so I didn’t venture out. Time kept passing by and I continued to notice thatit wasn’t raining and I could have been out riding as it was still dry. Finally I took another look at the radar and ALL of that rain I saw earlier was gone … completely disappeared off of the screen. GO FIGURE as they say. So at about 10:45 I finally left for a ride. I did not encounter any rain. I kept rechecking the weather radar and there was absolutely nothing showing on radar. Never the less after about 3 hours of riding I noticed that the sky was looking darker and more threatening off to the west. I learned years ago that one can not trust the weather radar nor forecasts. I made the decision to head back home and it turned out to be the right decision as it started to rain about a mile from where I live. It started raining harder but I quickly rode out of it and managed to stay pretty dry. I had my canopy on my trike so that helped me stay dry. Interestingly upon getting home I checked the weather radar on my desktop computer and it showed rain. My stupid “smartphone” still showed no rain on the same reporting source as I was looking at on my desktop computer. Weird! Anyway, I got a nice ride in without getting wet for which I was quite thankful. As to the weather reporting source … pssshhhhtttt on them. And they even get paid for that … quite a lot, in fact.It is not often I can say RAIN RAIN GO AWAY and it does. I wish I could say it happens quite frequently. I want to …
