And, there were some storms nearby but no rain fell upon my area of the valley in spite of flash flood warnings being issued. Come on, monsoon rains! A high of 102 degrees is on for the valley today, but I sure hope that promised cooling trend is still on its way as I want to get back on the road with my bike. It has about 1,775 miles on it and I want to hit 2000 miles this autumn and winter. A winter with no snow that is.
