It was a beautiful, sunny day here in Lynden, and I thought I would take the Harley out to look at some jobs and do some errands around the county. Fair enough. I had just finished my last errand, and noticed that the sky was clouding over. I jumped on the bike and headed for Lynden, 20 miles away. On the road, it started to sprinkle, no big deal. Then, it got heavier, and all of a sudden, huge chunks of ice were hitting me in the face, and I had no place to stop! I rode on for another 5 minutes, then came to a familiar stop on Pole Rd. and Hannegan, and ducked in under the cover of the service station. When it got really strong, I was riding with my right hand on the throttle, and my left hand covering my mouth and face where my visor didn’t protect it. It was the first time I had experienced something like this, as I had only ridden the bike in good weather. Well, I guess I’m inaugurated now! I waited for it to let up a bit, and then came the rest of the way home, although it was still raining. Right now, as I write this, an hour later, the sky is clear and sunny! If you don’t like the weather in Whatcom County, just wait a minute!
