Best. Commute. Ever.

While I was driving in to work today over Lake Washington, a bald eagle flew over the bridge.

I love my commute.

Same for us on Friday. Jilli sees it more often than me as I have to keep my eyes fixed on the road but on Friday it was flying the length of the bridge so I had plenty of time to watch it coming and soar overhead. Very cool.

C'est a damned pretty ride over there, true. But when I saw the Weather Channel today talking about your rain and snow (!?), I remembered why the commute was less fun. The soaking-wet rainsuit hanging from the back of my office door, dripping dry all day, almost dry by the time I had to ride home....

Yeah, when it rains here, I'm only in it for about three minutes. W00t! No pretty mountains or eagles, though.

Er, snow is in the mountains, where it belongs. Weather Channel is on crack.

But yeah, motorcycling through rain all winter is much worse than putting the bike away from November to March during the snow season. No, wait, it isn't.

Congrats on your V-10 engine, BTW. What are you going to do with it?

I suppose they mean "within 30 miles of Seattle," which means, well, duh, the passes.

The V-10 goes into the 1972 Ford LTD station wagon. W00t!

Your station wagon frightens me. :)

My wife and I had a similar experience last year as we were driving back up the coast from a trip we took down to Oregon late last winter. We saw a bald eagle as we were making the crossing from Astoria. It graced with its presence for half the crossing of the Columbia. The only thing that would have made it cooler was if my son Nathaniel (then fourteen months old) had been able to focus on the eagle and be impressed by it as much as his parents were. However, he was sleeping... (to our normal thanks).
