A warm humid morning, but I like it!  A pretty good ride today although the days are getting shorter.  This led to a bit of a slower descent of the escarpment as it was both dark and mostly damp ground.  My lighting isn't strong enough to help me pick out obstacles in those conditions.  Generally I depend on some light and then look for dark shadowy patches as potential obstacles.  The wet pavement takes that contrast away.  I'm getting close to the practical life of my batteries and have been looking at new and improved upgrade options that would make this situation better.  I might get shorter ride in tomorrow, but that's somewhat "iffy".  So a 3 or 4 day layoff coming up.
