A new chapter... Columbus, Ohio
I went out to lunch Thursday, the day after my final day on-air. A couple of the local meteorologists at the competitors stations wanted to take me out one final time and it was a lot of fun. I figured it was my final opportunity to ride my moped in Dayton. I was on my way home when I hit a patch of loose gravel. If you have talked to anyone who rides a motorcycle, moped, scooter, or bicycle... loose gravel is your worst nightmare. I was slowing down and only going about ten miles an hour and the bike slid out from under me and my skin met the pavement. If you check my Instagram or Twitter feed you can see a much more impressive photo of the road rash, but I figured I would leave it off of here. I have been bandaging it up to keep the bleeding and pus to spread minimally. I have been cleaning it and taking care of it... no worries. And the bike saw barely any scratches...just pedal, seat, and luggage rack...if you look hard.
Sunday night for the Ohio Valley. The remnants from Hurricane Isaac is keeping us mostly cloudy with hit or miss rain. The warm temperatures, humidity and isolated rain will continue into the start of the week. Labor Day will not be a washout so firing up the grill will be possible...just might want to take a quick peak at the radar to see if any rain is around the corner. The system will move eastward and we dry out a little more for the second half of the week with cooler temperatures on the way for next weekend, but we may have to trade that off for a little rain Saturday. Have a good one!
