The missus is out on her long ride today and calls asking for a weather report. This dummy looks at the radar and tells her she's got at least a couple of hours before the rain hits. I'm guessing that the radar wasn't up to date because I looked outside about 20 minutes later and it's looking very dark out there. Considering I work near a window I might have the sense to look outside. But NO, techy boy has to rely on the radar!

I figure it's best to wait and see since calling her would just keep her out longer. A few minutes ago I look out and it's pouring. I run to the car and head out to find her and give her a ride home. As I pull out of the lot she's coming up the hill in front of my workplace in the rain. She said it had just started raining and was heading home. She refused the ride and seemed to be laughing it off.

We'll see how this one goes.. :blush2:

She'll just chauk up getting weather reports from you into the same catagory as not stopping and getting directions when lost. Those calls will stop. Well played Sir!

Points lost for the weather report, points gained for her knowing you were worried and coming to look for her. Even score.

See, this all would work out alright for you, EXCEPT, she is on RBR as well, and a lounge regular.

Your hosed.

You should have told her there was an 80% chance of rain, meaning it was only going to rain on 80% of the area. She just rode in the wrong spots.

Yeah, I shoulda known better. I could see the same storm system the Better Half could have seen from his window from the ridgetop where I was ridng when I called for a whether report. I thought I'd have enough time. I was BENT on getting in 50 miles today.

Nailed it!

Don't mess with The Missus.

I'm thinking new bling might get you out of this one.

Or not.

Well she's sending me out for an afternoon ride. She's telling me that the weather is fine. I hope Bent isn't waiting in the wings!
