I thought the rain was gone

It's back, another weekend, and probably through the first part of next week. Today, it was hit-and-miss, with the sun out sometimes and then a quick downpour. I was able to get a ride in though, more midday, versus early when I usually go. I did keep an eye on the horizon though, and could see showers in the distance. Only a few random drops hit me. Earlier in the week, the weather was much more July like, basically hot and sunny.

The other news is the death of Lady Bird Johnson, wife of LBJ, it's big news here in Texas naturally. She was a very sweet lady. They broadcast the funeral today, with her daughters and granddaughters giving eulogies. She's known for her beautification efforts and the Wildflower Center bearing her name. Rest In Peace.

Do you feel lucky, well do ya punk?

It's 7/7/7, I just had to write an entry today. Otherwise, I'd have to wait another hundred years...

I tried to get a ride in this morning, knowing some rain was coming, and I almost got back before it started to pour. I was about one minute late, resulting in somewhat of a soaking :-) The rain only lasted about 10 minutes, but it did rain rather hard for that short time. It cleared up soon after, and has been partly cloudy since. It looks like the upper level low pressure area causing all the rain is moving to the northeast, so we may get back to normal summer weather -- but that's what we thought a couple weeks ago.

The fundraising for the Challenge has been going well. The LAF website now has 'gadgets' for donor lists and fundraising goals that you can embed in other websites. I've put one of them on my home page.
