    Been raining steadily at more than just a drizzle for a few hours here in Mickeyville. FLoop is contraindicated tomorrow.

    Hmmmm, was getting lofty with my ride ideas thinking HJ or SJT but MS is closer to me. Game time decision at the time the first kid wakes me up tomorrow.

    Oh geez, this weather stuff is so inconsistent. It was supposed to start raining late tomorrow morning but look at the radar on the Forums home page. They are evacuating Santa Barbara right now. I hear that light rain is falling in Malibu. I wanna go for a ride in the morning gosh darnit! :mad:

    Pinche rain trying to derail my training plans!
    For my Santa Ana's regulars- my plan was to do the 2nd half of the CC Thursday. You think that's gonna be possible?

    I'm mostly wondering if the dirt will be ok. I don't mind getting wet.

    My guess... Maple to the peak will be fine, as will Holy Jim. You'll have some dirty muddy fun coming down the wash.

    It looks like the long range forecast has the rain fizzling out. This weekend should be good to go.

    Only on the north side. Coming over the 118 it was mostly blue skies to the south and a torrential downpour to the north.20180314_173857-3024x2268.jpg

    Its a narrow band of anger. Here in the Crescenta Valley, we have only light clouds.

    But if I look to the West... :eek:

    Weather Underground lied to me. Got caught in the rain on my road ride for about 15 to 20 mins. The water from the rear wheel felt quite cold on my rear end.

    Wow, now that was some seriously ANGRY rain that rolled through Northern L.A. in the middle of the night. Started at about 12:15am here and went on and off for at least a few hours. It was too loud to sleep while it was happening and quite windy at times. I bet La Tuna is a mess now.

    I just looked outside and it is as clear as glass.

    Colder than a brass brassiere here in Palmdale today. Boo, more rain tomorrow. Looks like Sunday will be riding day this weekend. Hope Castaic is not too muddy (hate the increased cleanup required).
