Woke to blue skies and scattered clouds. Thought about getting out on the bike after I had finished some work around the house.

Turned the radio on and listened to a constant flow of reports of flooding and flood warnings around the country, and warnings that the bad weather would soon hit the south.

Went out walking instead, just wandering around town and close enough to the bus to be home quickly when the weather turned.

No rain. Annoyed that I missed a chance to get on the bike

Bit breezy, but otherwise a bright, sunny day. Did a fair bit of walking, maybe three hours in total. Found some nice little roads and paths that I haven’t noticed before, in all the time that I have lived here.

Made the mistake of wearing new shoes, so am now in blistered hell.
