Now this is more like it. If it’s going to rain, I’d much rather it be chilly, so I can wear rain gear and actually be comfortable in it. This morning was 50 degrees with a nice, misty drizzle. I wore full rain gear, which includes a Marmot rain jacket, hi-vis vest, Novara rain pants, and shoe covers. Ideally I’d like it maybe 5 degrees cooler, but this wasn’t bad. I was comfortable enough that I extended my ride a bit and did a loop through the park. My rain jacket is about a year old now, and I really like it. It normally runs around $90-$100 at REI, but I believe I got it on sale for $70 or so. It’s been worth the money. I recently found out that an REI is going to be opening in Columbia, around 10 minutes from me. A convenient REI could be dangerous for our bank account. It’s much safer having the REI on the opposite side of town, 20 miles away, in a direction we never go.
