    The Equinox ride on Thursday could be interesting.

    Alright mister, I've tried to let it go. Really I have. But that's the third apostrophe abuse in 3 posts!

    Plurals are different than possessive. Just saying. Or is it plural's?

    Phew, got that off my chest. Feel free to continue.

    See, this just proves the fallacy of trying to enforce Latin grammar on a West Germanic language. :stop:

    Just how do you know it's wrong?

    These days, in the era of truthiness and "it's fact because I want it to be fact," I have no idea. Epistemology died.

    I'll leave it at this and we can get back to the weather....in English there is one way to say the definite article. "The." Who would need more?

    The Germans have 16. :eek: How in the name of all that's unholy does that enhance communication and understanding??????:rolleyes:

    I use the English language professionally to express geotechnical and hydrological and biological and archaeological and paleontological and visual and itinerant and exhaustive (with a pun) impacts to the public at a 4th grade reading level. It ain’t easy.

    Good thing I didn't plan to ride today. Got up to a downpour. Didn't last long but it would have been a miserable ride to work. Bike Month or no Bike Month.

    Friday and Saturday forecast for 30% and 40% chance of rain, respectively. Whoever out there was hoping for a normal spring, stop it already.

    Spring has the most erratic weather of any season. Its a battle between the slipping grasp of Winter and the pull of an approaching Summer. Hot, cold, wet, dry, and wind.
