Peeling Out

On my way back home during my workout this afternoon, I was fighting a headwind (and some thick air: ultra-high humidity made for terrible visibility) and going pretty slow. This gave me the dubious opportunity to study the flotsam and jetsam on the roads, including the ubiquitous roadkill, soda containers, and cigarette packs.

Today's weirdest find was a half-dozen blackened banana peels, evenly spaced from each other and all about a foot or to inside the white line. I wouldn't even have recognized them but for the bright-blue Chiquita stickers. Shannon proposed that they had been dropped by some cyclists on the way back into town. I suppose that's a good guess, though - six? where the riders on tandems with monkeys?

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
