I rode through there today. The work is just about complete, and bikes can now get through. I suspect the gates will soon open for cars.

Foggy conditions on Thursday morning, October 22, 2020
Forum: Road Problems

Perhaps the foggiest conditions I've ever cycled through. Left from home (21286), then cycled through the Loch Raven watershed up to Sweet Air Road. The roads through Loch Raven weren't that bad - perhaps the woods kept the fog at bay. The fog hanging over the reservoir cast an eerie kind of beauty that I'm glad I got to see. Something out of an old horror flick. Anyway, once I got onto Dulaney Valley Road, visibility was dangerously poor. I suppose my blinking red taillight helped because the cars went around me. But seeing cars in front was problematic: I could barely see them and I'm sure they could barely see me. My concerns about pace and distance took a backseat to focusing on returning home in one piece. Obviously I did or you wouldn't be reading this; you'd be reading something else. Total distance was 26 miles, though the ride seemed much longer, given the need to keep braking while descending Dulaney Valley and surrendering the road a few times to wide-bodied vehicles. There but for the grace, right? Don't try this at home. And thanks for reading.     

Feels like last May (2016) all over again, rain and more rain. No ride tonight, sorry.

Because of the rainy forecast, the 44-mile 13/15 ride scheduled for Saturday, May 27th is canceled.

The charges are in with regard to Bishop Cook: Vehicular Manslaughter, Texting While Driving, DUI and Leaving The Scene of an Accident.

I read where the manslaughter charge can be tough to prove. Apparently, the state's attorney's office has strong evidence to back it up. I wonder if this will be a plea bargain deal or full-length trial. Stay tuned.

A moving show of solidarity. Many thanks to the folks who helped organize it.

I find it remarkable that Bishop Cook has yet to be charged with anything. Don't you?

You're right, it could have been any one of us. It's tragic events like this that drive home how random life can be. Do we really have control of our lives? Or is our path from cradle to grave dictated largely by forces beyond our control, some seen, others not?

Off topic maybe, but thoughts worth pondering in light of Mr. Palermo's terrible misfortune.
