Hurricanes and riding

Most everyone by now has heard about Hurricane Ike heading directly over top of us in approx 16hrs.

With some gusty winds leading up to this storm I took advantage of it by getting out on the mtb and doing some intervals for 90 minutes. Pushing into the wind was actually quite nice.

The wind is getting stronger now and of course the sky is grey, it's starting to get darker as we head towards night time. I'm sure by midnight things will be a little wilder. We are staying at home and we are prepared for what the predictions are calling for; winds up to 80mph and some possible flooding, we are further inland so things should be less severe here as compared to other areas. With lots of food and water on hand and some bike magazines laying around we will be just fine. ;-)
