note to self: bring towel

it rained IN the car today. i didn’t even think i was taking a risk– it was overcast, but not ominous, and no rain was predicted today.

it was a short but very fierce blast of rain. i had to pull over on the interstate to put up the top. tried to ride it out– it started out as a heavy sprinkle– but i couldn’t make it.

of course, once i arrived in durham it appeared to be dry as a bone here. i wish it would actually rain dammit!
