Off the ark
Whew! After several days of monsoon weather and a trip to St. Louis with my dad to see a doctor, I was finally able to come down out of the ark today and ride my bike to work. The only place I had any issues is pictured above, the intersection of Catalpa and Barnes. It’s down from what it was earlier…check out Jim’s picture of the same place.
I waited here a few minutes for a car to attempt it so I could see how deep it was out there. I could have easily turned around and gotten around it, but I didn’t think it was deep enough to warrant doing so. The first car was turning around as I approached, and the second was a VW Bug that turned around rather than cross through. Finally:
After seeing him cross, I followed on my bike. Fortunately, the bottom bracket is high enough on the Surly that I was able to keep my feet dry as I pedaled through down the middle of the street. Hopefully, the monsoon is about over for us.
