BREAK that Drought!


Steady Rain this Evening
North Texas has been in a drought. That means I have some rain gear that has not yet been properly tested. This afternoon, as per our local forecast, we got rain. Unfortunately we didn't get the "two to four inches" that was promised so it was not a thorough test. Seal Skinz gloves - marginal since they get wet from the inside out instead of the outside in, but still an improvement. Showers Pass - shoe covers not tried since my boots were more than adequate - rain hat needs a balaclava - helmet cover ditto (cold ears).

Perhaps we'll get a more robust rain tomorrow morning...

As the temperature plunges into the 30F to 50F range, I struggle with my gear already, to fend off hypothermia. If it starts raining, my go-to strategy will be denial.

If I could send you some of the rain that we have had over this past year I would :) ....more than enough with which you could test out your gear fully. Second highest annual rainfall since records began by all accounts...
