Lunch Ride, Wind and Rain

The Friday lunch ride revisited Roma Imports.  It was a pleasant ride to the restaurant.  Lunch was good.  When we left the wind was picking up.  We headed out St. Mary's into the wind.  Then we headed south with a very frisky cross wind.  It was weird when we were riding, it was clouding up and looking very monsoon-ish.  Apparently we had a rotating upper-level low steering the weather.  When we got home, we had a heart shaped cloud.

Then it really picked up and it rained.   I would not have predicted that.

It was good, it rained enough to settle the dust and pollen that was stirred up yesterday.  It didn't last long, but it really improved the environment.  It's kind of a bummer, this weekend is the Tucson Festival of Books.  They're setting up in tents on the UofA campus.  It's also the Tucson Bicycle Classic.  Today was the time trial, and I think some of the riders got wet.  Depending on a rider's start time, they had an enormous range of weather conditions.
After the deluge, the sun returned and the birds were happy. 

So that's the report.  Lunch, wind, rain.
