As I was riding into work this morning, the sun was a very distinct orange ball through the haze. I thought it would be a neat photo to have the orange sun rising next to the bell tower. However, when I rode over to the Engineering Mall, I saw that the sun wasn’t yet high enough to clear the Engineering Administration building (ENAD). I couldn’t wait around for 20 minutes, so I’ll have to try it another day.
At 5:00, I checked upstairs and noted a little bit of rain – more like spitting rain than actual rainfall. The radar didn’t show anything worse coming from the west, so I chanced it and took off for home on the South Work Route. Luckily, the rain never materialized.
I passed a bunch of stopped cars (two blocks worth) on Williams Street heading down the hill towards River Road. It saved me a couple of minutes, but I felt a little unsafe for doing it. I’ll wait in my place in line next time.
