The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

26 May 2005

Rained out

At least long enough this morning to decide "Well, we're not going to get anything done here," even though the afternoon was bright and sunny.

Not so bright was the tailgater I drew on I-44 westbound; it took not one but two exhibitions of "Geez, that guy must be insane" to shake her. The more interesting of the two was the left-lane exit at Classen Circle, the curve of which is most safely managed at 30 mph or so, and which I took somewhere in the lower 50s, about 10 over my usual. I really don't like doing this sort of thing — at some level, I'm aware that I'm just asking for a local version of the Darwin Awards — but it did tell me that I can probably go ahead with World Tour '05 without having to buy a set of tires first. (Zoom Zoom means nothing if you can't hold the road.)

Tomorrow: who knows? The city's official completion date is still listed as the 18th of September.

Be careful! I witnessed an accident there just last week. :) Fun to find another Okie blog.
