Before we even left Long Island on Friday afternoon, we knew it was going to be rainy on Saturday. The weather forecast called for a 90% chance. The meteorologist was all in. But thankfully, based on the radar it seemed like we’d have clear sunny skies bookending the weekend.
So? We’d have a rainy day ride on Saturday. A little rain never hurt anyone. Or maybe it has and we’ve just been fooling ourselves all this time.
Pit stop at Kaaterskill Falls.
Rain, rain, go away.
It was hard to believe what a slow trickle the falls was this year.
This is what it has looked like in years past:
We’re not scared of a little drizzle!
The view from the top of the falls.
Or, more accurately, a view of me at the top of the not-so-fallsy-falls.
Even though the weather didn’t cooperate we still had a great time.
A lesson I need to learn over and over and over again: Sometimes you’ve just go to get on with things. If you’re going to sit around waiting for ideal conditions, you’re going to end up disappointed. A lot. Grab your life by the collar, shake it up real good-like and shout, “I will have fun, damn it!”
