It's been a while since I've had to commute in the rain, usually I've been flexible enough to time my short dash to coincide with a hole in the clouds. That just wasn't an option this morning, we had rain, not light drizzle, and not the massive fat drops that soak you in an instant, just regular old rain... and it wasnt going anywhere. Out from the bottom of my box of ancillary bicycle clothing came booties, not the aero kind that occasionally gets a look in at the velodrome, just the old fashioned, please keep my socks from getting soaked booties.

Bike traffic was non existent, while car traffic was as good as stationary. With a fender on the back and my feet snug and dry, it was actually a nice roll, surrounded by frustration and unhappiness, I rolled serenely through.
