    Already passed us by Guy...plenty of rain, wind and storm sirens all day and then a gorgeous sunset. You folks further up the coast need to be careful.

    It looks like it is going west of MA. Pity. We could have used the rain for the gardens.

    46 mile ramble through Virginia hunt country. Hardly any traffic on the roads (good because there are virtually no shoulders).
    This is Middleburg, halfway. On a normal weekday this place would be crammed. Now, not so much...

    Thought I'd get my 4 mile trail fast walk in before the storm hit in earnest...



    That wasn't there on the way out... I guess it is getting serious...

    Went to the neighboring mountain for some relentless climbing. I have a 34 up front and a 42 in back, and it wears me out. Of course an overweight middle aged couple on a ebikes passed me on the really steep crap.






    The view up top isn’t bad. Vancouver and Victoria are over there across the water.

    I only did 2 bicycle rides in 3 weeks.

    However I have been racking up the miles on the water...

    Up in NY, Isaias wasn't going to waste a second chance to get a Florida car.

    Storm wasn't so bad here in Columbia County, although most of Hillsdale lost power, us from early afternoon until around ten.

    We have a whole house generator fueled by a 1,000 gallon propane tank. I've never had anything like this before. Pretty darn nice.

    Anyway, today's my 5th wedding anniversary, and we'd normally be getting ready to head to Maryland and the beach for two weeks, but we had already cancelled that knowing that when we moved we wouldn't be looking to pack up and leave two months later. That was even before Covid-19.

    First ride since Saturday...gonna have to work to get the hundred miles this week...34miles/4,100' done.
