Other than digging, what are you all going to be doing to keep you occupied on a rainy day?

Beer and nintendo are starting to sound kinda fun...

well, tomorrow i'm going to be extreme-o and try and ride, we'll see how that goes though. i'm depressed though, the only reason i had left to like california was that it isn't rainy too often, then we get a full week of nonstop rain.

In your pants
Today is work from 8-5, with a side of work from 5-10. Then a party from 10:15-10:45. Then the main course of the day: RAMBO at 11:10pm.

Tomorrow is working out with a side of cardio, and a desert of an 8 hour inventory shift at the bike shop from 4pm-midnight.

Sunday is a full blown day of work from 9-5. Then back to my Monday-Friday again.

That sounds pretty fun. Kelly was saying the same thing. I'd have to practice my virtual guitar strumming skills though. :rockout:

oops, i forgot the sarcastic smiley at the end of my comment, haha. i can't complain about the weather here at all really, the constant storms are just wearing on me...sounds like there'll be some serious trail work needed after this beast, i heard 6 inches of rain just today in the santa cruz mountains.

*edit, just checked snow reports, kirkwood was reppin' 3 feet from the last storm, it sounds like we'll be getting about that if not more just today and tomorrow.

Have they let the water back in Lexington yet? it was dark when I drove by today.

Looks like little sliding has began in various places, hope 17 stays open this weekend o/w my plans next week are screwed.
Yeah they have been letting water back in. I have been up there a few times this week on my bike and its getting filled up again.

There was for sure the start of a few good slides on 17. Hope it doesn't get too bad.

I want to go riding. Enough already with the rain.

parking garage sessions.
Last year I was itching to ride, I drove over to the BART parking lot and did a few elevator shuttles. That and worked on the street tricks. The parking garage race in WC last year was lots of fun.

but for now... Wii will fill mii spare time. Bought a zapper and medal of honor 2, but haven't touched it since my buddy lent me Res. Evil 4.

I have just been riding the Los Gatos Creek trail up there and back. Its about 6.8 miles round trip. But its a good cx ride for sure, normally takes me 25-30 min. Anyone game to join me? Anyone seen me out there? I'm on a pea green Surly Cross-Check.

A parking garage race sounds awesome. We had one last year during a rainy weekend that was going great until one of my friends tried to pedal through a corner on his commuter hybrid bike thingy. Sure the wheels are bigger, but it turns out that the cranks are longer also.

According to the extended forecast, it's supposed to rain next weekend too :twitch::rant::bonk::banghead::huh::panic::rant: :disgust1:

i went for a ride today, it felt awesome to get out again, the joaquin miller trails were in alright shape except for a few trees and debris. this rain really needs to stop, this week will suck because everything will start drying up again and then the weekend will ruin the progress. aaaaaaagh i want to be able to ride pacifica again soon.

Man, I was lucky today on my lunch ride. Right as I opened the door to the office after my ride it started pouring. It was nice and sunny for 90% of my ride. =]

Bummer this weekend looks like its out.
