Foggy Morning

You smell that? Do you smell that? Fog, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of fog in the morning.1

Condensation formed on my handlebars during this morning’s ride. Either that, or the fog was a lot thicker than I thought.

Regardless, the fog was dense enough to smell. Mmm… I love that. :-)

Biking recap for September 2014

My September Bicycling Accomplishments

  • Not much a month to write home about,1 as I biked only 144 miles. I biked that low mileage even though this is BTA Bike Commute Challenge month.2 I got sick at the beginning of the month, working from home for much of a week and then I took a week’s vacation without my bike. That probably explains why my distance was about half what I would have expected.
  • I have biked 2,274 miles so far in 2014. At this rate, I will get 3,032 miles for the entire year. Assuming I don’t get sick or take more long vacations without a bike (not likely), I should hit 3,000 miles.
  • I didn’t even take many pictures on my bike rides in September. Here are the only two I took on a bike ride, one from this morning and the blood donation picture stretches the category:

Firechat — A tool for the digital citizen

Firechat appears to be another useful tool for the digital citizen during civil unrest.

The Fireside Marquee

We dropped by NW 23rd, celebrating Ashley’s recent birthday with desserts at Papa Haydn. Waiting for a table for seven, we wandered a while and I snapped some shots. Fireside’s marquee, with its neon accents and witty epigram, won the evening.1


  1. Rethinking, I would award the win to the hazelnut huckleberry cheesecake I enjoyed for dessert. Mmm… :-)
