Good times.

My ride to work today was quite eventful. After yesterday's storm I had to make about 10 detours to avoid fallen trees and flooded roads. We also lost power briefly and didn't get our cable working again until moments ago. On the way back from work I accidentally rode through hub-deep water and ran over several large sticks and stumps due to my headlight's low battery. The bike lanes and trails are all completely over run with fallen limbs so I found myself riding in the grooves left by car tires when possible, and cautiously using the sidewalk/opposite lane/people's yards/levee roads when car traffic was too heavy. Every ride is an adventure.
