Taking advantage?

Anyone else taking advantage of this break in weather to get some riding in? I know some ride rain or shine, but others don't. I road in to work yesterday and today and hope to cruise around a little tonight before it gets too dark.

Saturday and Sunday look like decent days to hopefully explore a little bit - I hope I can make time.

Fortunately I live in Central California, where we have no real wether. We have 2 seasons, Sunny and Not sunny. Or Sprimmer and Falter. I'm more likely to ride the bike on the 20 or so rainy days than I am the 40+ over 100. The worst wether I see is the 3 months of FOG I call Falter.

Probability of rain according to weatherunderground for this hour? 40%
I just looked outside - it is pouring.
