... east of Madison, beginning in Cottage Grove, we biked for about 18 miles today.
I like an overcast sky with photographable clouds.
But I don't want to hear thunder. This is how it looked just before a big downpour.
We sought shelter in the library in Deerfield. I read the Utne Reader (after Meade handed it to me) and Meade read the Mayo Clinic Newsletter until the librarian said she was closing in a minute. The worst of the rain was over, and we pedaled back over the trail, dodging chipmunks and frogs and one dark brown rabbit.
