Always Check the Weather Forecast

December, 2010

I have vacation days to burn before the end of the year. I plan an easy mountain bike ride at Susquehanna State Park, using the trail running along the river. I expect to be alone, as it is mid-week.

Something nudged me to double-check the weather before leaving the house. An alert was issued for the Susquehanna area. Due to all the rainfall, the dam was high. They may open the flood gates and let water out into the river. I cancel my plans.

If I had been riding along the edge ... unbeknownst to the threat ...
