Fortunately, that one day heat wave that began on Tuesday stretched in to Wednesday morning so it was a rare, unexpected, and exceptionally fun, late October ride.
I checked the radar before heading out. Rain was approaching, but it wouldn't be here for a few hours. Clouds were moving in, so it wasn't a moonlight ride.
Curbside fallen leaves rustled as I blew by. Skunks and a possum were ravaging trash cans, looking for a late night snack. It was odd to hear the hum of air conditioners at homes I passed, coupled with Halloween decorations in the yard and on the porches. Summer time comfort mixed with fall decorations-- something you rarely see.
I'm going to hate mothballing the bike for the winter. Please, Mother Nature, just one more warm spell!
As for the World Series, I was off by one game. I predicted Giants in 6. It was Giants in 7. Kansas City pleasantly surprised me.
Baseball's over. It's going to be a long winter.
