When we take the bike and see big black clouds overhead in Washington, we start looking for shelter. Here in Florida, we have big puffy clouds nearly every day, but they seem to just drift by without drenching us.Even big black clouds aren't too concerning. I thought you might be able to see the thermometer gauge. It registered a steady 83 from when we started at 10 a.m. for the entire 50 mile trip to Okeechobee. We were happy when the clouds covered the sun from time to time.
We are just days away from deciding to head back to Washington, so stocking up on fruit and veggies is definitely not something I should be doing.
There is a city wide park in the median between the four lane highways through the city. I wanted to stop at the butterfly garden area, but by the time we left the flea market, the bike told us it was 86, and the clouds were gone. We took a different highway back to the house, which was nearly identical in length, but that went west and north instead of east and south. All roads seem to lead to Okeechobee. Great ride - thankful for sunscreen and a few clouds - hard to believe we are still in February.
