    Weather: Color in the Catskills

    Unfortunately, the weather report for 36 hours is very poor. In Albany, 40 miles north, the clouds are closing in now (2:00 pm) and the chance of rain through Sunday morning is very high.

    Ditto here in Vermont. I was going to go to a function at the NY, CT border but the weather looks "damp"

    Heading up in my 'Stich on Sunday!.

    70 degrees and beautiful!

    I really don't mind riding in the rain. But, living on Long Island and driving in traffic during a rain storm is an adventure of it's own kind. Just not fun!

    For those of you who didn't come up today you missed just about perfect weather.
    Partly to mostly sunny highs around 70. Forecast for tomorrow looks good.

    I don't mind finding an adventure, it is just foolish to start out in one..camping in the rain? Not if I can help it.

    You need to ignore the weather forecast, The weather men are wrong more than thay are right. I left Ct on Friday afternoon, arrived by 8:30 PM and the only rain we had was Friday night until Saturday about 6:00 AM . We had clouds and threats of rain but it was a wonderful weekend.

    Glad to see all my good friends.

    yeah, i figured a dry ride up and a dry ride home and got both. friday night was rainy, but i'd had enough beer that it didn't matter, just sorta fell into my tent and woke up to the buzz of the Akrapovics on the HP2s (or was it just my head). most of the rain came and left in that time. little bit more sat night but no big. hit real heavy downpours riding east of the rally on sat, but turned west and it was just fine, plenty of time to dry out.

    I was betting on spending most of Saturday sitting inside having some drinks, but instead it was nice and sunny (had to open the vents on my Olympia jacket). Riding home on Sunday I encountered a few clouds that gave me 1-2 minutes of light mist, and then just a 15-20 minute rain as I rode through the Erie, PA area (lake effect). It was cool, but otherwise a fine ride and I was able to score a good average speed over those 600 miles. Really, I couldn't ask for much better weather this time of year.

    My bike and I stayed dry Friday night, flipped a coin on Sat and luckily heads (head west) won, so I stayed dry, and only hit a few sprinkles southbound on Rt 10 Sun morning. A great weekend.
