What A Week
I started the week off, last Sunday, throwing up in the middle of the night. I then proceeded to sleep for about 30 hours. The rest of week was spent in a fog, which I am just now pulling out of.
Then, a couple of days after I got sick, the rain came down like some kind of biblical plague. Yesterday, for instance, we had over 12 inches of rain at the airport. That's about what we usually get in the whole month of September. They say that if we had gotten this week's moisture as snow, it would be over 20 feet deep.
Huge floods were the result. My buddy Danny had 18 inches of water in his basement. Considering the fact that he finally completed his finished basement in April, it was a pretty hard hit.
I wrote a song about the floods. We will debut it at Bushwacker's, on the 27th.
In bike news, Bikes Direct (the company who owns the Motobecane, Windsor and other classic bike names _ my 29er frame came from them) is taking preorders for fatbikes. They have a fully-equipped alloy model for $695.00!
Now, there is an affordable entry-level fatbike available. Between that and the new entries in the field from Specialized and Trek, the fatbike field is opening up!
