Officially my worst (non-crash) ride ever.        

Last Friday, we were supposed to get "mild sprinkles off and on" *maybe*. I saddle up and ride to work, and get a few spots on the way in. About 15 minutes before it's time to leave and the sky opens up. I'm now praying it stops in time, which it magically does. I figured sweet - I can shoot home and beat the next wave. It's only 16 miles, 99% freeway. As you can figure, it started sprinkling as I lave and head for the freeway. By the time I actually get on the freeway, it's half way between sprinkling and full on raining. A mile in on the freeway and now it's raining steadily. By the time I hit 6 miles and the only interchange, it's pouring, and stays that way all the way to my doorstep.

Some takeaways:

1. You guys that ride in the rain are certifiably insane.
2. Reflectors are the devil's spawn when wet.
