Things I saw on my commute VI

  • On the Cambie St. Bridge, in the evening (so it is dark), in a light drizzle. I see one of those electric scooter things coming in the opposite direction WITHOUT ITS LIGHTS ON. It could be argued that those things should not be on the bike/pedestrian path at all. But if you're going to ride your electric scooter at night on a bike path then maybe you should turn your headlight on?
  • One day on the way home I noticed that the rain, which had just started, had become particulary painful and stinging on my face. It turned out to be hail. It didn't last long. The normal precipitation that followed stopped my front brake from squealing. This is unusual; the rain made my last set of brake pads squeal even harder.
