The first rain of the season came and went this past weekend. It was a small storm with relative low wind speeds and Temperatures that stayed in the 50s. The real beauty of the storm was the timing and the duration, lasting only two and half days. It cleared the roads of congestion and as it departed, left a surreal beauty. With the moon high in the sky Sunday evening, a test run was in order to calculate the distance between a dry run and wet run. Results were discouraging at best, even with light traffic times were too high to even be mentioned on the scale, but the run was not in vain. It confirmed a few small pieces of the strategy to run 35, as well as put the final nail in the coffin for the Sumitomo HTR 200s. I'm looking forward to the next wet run.
