April showers

Every year, I make a Cafe Press calendar with photos from the previous year’s motorcycle trips.

This month is all Femmoto pics. This makes me very happy, even as we’re in day 27 or so of record-setting rains, with no end in sight.


From The National Weather Service: “Not only was March 2006 one of the wettest on record, but it was also one of the coldest. Rainfall totals for the month were well above normal, and temperatures were well below normal. Records were set for number of rainy days, rainfall totals, and for coldest average temperatures.”

Santa Clara county continues having a “hazardous weather outlook”, and many of the coastal and mountainous motorcycling roads are closed due to landslides. The Santa Cruz and Santa Lucia Mountain Ranges are being hammered with rain, and the Devil’s Slide portion of Hwy 1 (between Pacifica and Half Moon Bay) is once again closed indefinitely.

Quote of note: “The Devil’s Slide area of Highway 1 is especially prone to rockslides. The last major road closure was in 1995, when a landslide closed the highway for 150 days.”

Whee. Hopefully it’ll stop raining for the April 20-22 Sport-Touring.net Central Coast ride…Peter and I have already done that route in a downpour. 😉
