The weather started nice today with a few stray raindrops.  I could see it was dark to the northwest, but nothing ominous.  And the assumption largely held out.  Unfortunately, physically I just wasn't in form today.  So I plodded on, determined to at least ride.  As I headed north and it began to get light I could see it was rather dark to the northwest, but slow moving.  After seeing a couple do lightening flashes well off in the distance, I knew I wouldn't have been able to make it all the way to the lake without possibly running into severe weather.  Thus I went a bit further and then turned around.  As bad as this ride was going it made sense anyway.  And fittingly, light rain showers started about 6-8 miles from home.  Just wet enough to have a messy bike to clean up.  Tomorrow was likely a rest day anyway, so this just confirms it.
