More of an observation post than anything else, but in the last few times I have commuted, both on Raven and in my car, I have seen more and more people looking like phone-zombies while trying to drive through the traffic. Everyone knows it is unsafe, even deadly, to be looking at a phone screen while driving. It is beyond common sense now, but common knowledge.

Well, last ride for a couple weeks at least. It has been in the mid 50s here for 6 days in a row. In January. Now, it goes back to the 20s and 30s, more normal for this time of year. Was a nice ride in and out from work and good times with the guys from Louisville Vintage Motor Works.
Ok, so to first lay all worries, I was not in an accident.
Today looked great for a commute. Sure, it was cold this morning (24 deg f) but this afternoon was clear skies, mid 40’s and near perfect. I got downtown without issue, got parked and got into work quite early. So, coffee to warm up before sitting at the desk. Whole thing about this morning, leaving when it was dark and cold was I finally knew it wasn’t gonna be an issue. Went from my house up via surface streets to River road and straight into downtown. Probably could leave earlier, but for the first time, I wanted a little more time and a little less traffic to deal with. I got both.
