I was happy to be driving home in my Saturn last night, sheltered from the heavy rain and strong breeze. I almost always see a few students riding around in the rain, but one today caught my eye.
Even though it was getting dark fast, he had no lights or reflectors that I saw, and he was in dark clothing. He did seem to be taking the lane safely for his left hand turn at the light. What made him stand out was the fact that he was holding a full-sized red umbrella with one hand while steering with the other. I wish I could have taken a picture.
I’m riding to work today, as it looks like the best day of the week.
