One more CX Sunday at Hop Brook Lake.

Short summary -- Two races -- no good warm up -- some what little motivated until last race 2nd half... -- cold day -- flurries later. Good get away, just kinda expensive.

TOSREC 2014

It is going to be the 8th annual Tour OScenic Rural Eastern Connecticut this year.

Py  was a little more than usual watching this all crazy from day to day changing forcasts, but looking good from 9..10am and then very nice -- so don't be scared http://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:06320.1.99999

  • Thomas J Miceli and John Young like this.
  • Percy Zahl As of NOW by NOAA: for We: Showers and thunderstorms likely before 9am, then a chance of showers between 9am and 10am. Mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 74. West wind 14 to 17 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
  • Percy Zahl All will be fine and we all have those Star-Treck and beyond Smart-toys to check on rain radar (look for rain alarm osd app) -- and in case it should happen there is a remaining thunder cell we can always wait a few more minutes at the NL Dock for the sun to come out!

 Getting up in time to car pool with Kim to the Orient Point ferry. Warm morning, wet, but no rain any more. One the drive out East a few heavy and dark looking clouds towards South-East, a few drops -- but stopped dripping at the Ferry dock already! A smooth sail over to New London. And a clearing up sky :)

Ready to go, looking all good -- just a little dark clouds here and there high up and not looking like rain any more!  Let's go!

A little detour towards 49 as a bridge was missing... then finally on the scenic route :) Getting really warm now -- nice!
