So apparently we’ve broken a record for rainfall here in Oregon. I think the number being tossed around was 11+ inches of rain in the month of December so far. Because of this there has been quite a bit of flooding around the PDX area. Even some mudslides and a sinkhole too. It’s a bit nuts.
I had some vacation days to burn so did a half day of work on Friday and took this coming Monday off too. Codi and I did a quick walk in the woods in heavy rain on Friday afternoon.
Saturday I wanted to get outside, no matter what. I figured a 1 hour ride outside beats the heck out of one hour on the indoor trainer. It was cold, windy and wet, but at least I was warm.
Today I did one of my favorite loops. The loop includes a climb up Dixie Mtn Road which is a 9+ mile dirt/gravel road. The descent back to Jackson School makes all the climbing worth it though. I saw a handful of cars out there and that was about it. Got soaked (again) and was warm except for my feet. I could have used warmer socks.
Hoping to get CB out for some adventure tomorrow, but got to find someplace not under water.
Thanks for reading,
