    I was visiting my partner at Mt Auburn Hospital (biked over from Arlington, a short and sweet ride). Kept checking Accuweather as the rain started early. I needed to leave around 5 to get home to take care of our diabetic dog … and resigned myself to a one-hour-minimum T commute without an umbrella (or have to purchase one in the hospital gift shop). I left the hospital after continuing to see windshield wiper activity on Memorial Drive (left the helmet in partner’s room) and it was NOT raining. Ran back in, got helmet, and got home just as it started pouring again.

    I’ll just say I both dislike and fear biking in the rain, as I had a bad accident once that way.

    Longwood Medical Area was a parking lot. Must have passed a hundred cars. Saw a lot of bad motorist behavior too, such as not yielding to oncoming traffic when turning left, running red lights, etc. Frayed motorist nerves call for extreme vigilance!

    Rode from JP to Somerville and the torrent yesterday. My view is that once you’re soaked, you can’t get more soaked. Then you can just enjoy the ride!

    Of course, its easier to enjoy the ride when you’re on the way home from work and not the other way around…

    I kind of count on getting rained on at least 2-3 times per year on my ride home from work. I always have to remind myself once it starts raining just to slow down and turn my lights on. Brakes don’t work as well and motorists can’t see you as well either.
