My aging and therefore undependable memory says 50 days before the ride. Would that be Sunday after next?

I just saw the pre-ride announcement. June 2 – 8. With so much rain around – especially the Omaha/Council Bluffs area – I hope they have a safe ride.

I was just looking at Facebook, which is always a mistake, and saw that some friend had posted that Iowa will get 7 inches of rain over the next 8 days. I would be alarmed but of course things on Facebook have a 50% chance of being true. On a good day. And then only partially. I know that western Iowa and points west of there have suffered severe spring flooding. I know that NE Illinois has had this bizarre hot/cold, wet, wet, wet spring and we would like to see the end of the rain at least. I can’t imagine what the next week will be like if that story is true. I won’t have to imagine it entirely if it is true because the same graphic showed us in the 3 inch zone….

Could make for a miserable pre-ride. I guess that’s why they get paid the big bucks?!

Rain and flash flooding and tornados tonight. Most north of highway 30. Streams running full around here, can’t take too much more.
