    I saw a sea monster on my commute home yesterday!!

    I was outbound on the George Mason Bridge. Something floating in the river 35 feet below caught my eye. I thought it was a lost sea turtle at first. But it was a gigantic eastern snapping turtle. Alas, it was dead. Of course as I'm gawking at the size of it, and want other people to see too, the bridge was completely empty of any other cyclist or pedestrian. Typical.

    I'm taking guesses on how big you think that thing is.

    30-pack of shower caps: $2.50

    Dry head on tonight's ride home: eight and one-third cents.

    I'm also going to be experimenting with modifying them as booties, with a hole and some rubber bands.

    Haha, I use a purple one with pink polka dots, but I'm not sure where it is now. A buddy found these at a drug store mid-ride, which I think were intended to keep your beehive/bouffant nice and poofy

    Oh Man! Missing my "like" button.
    That's better by a long shot for the downpours! Even has a visor!

    Now I just need one of those big green shaded visors like the old ladies on the golf course or the poker dealer costume has.

    Decided to wait until the rain tapered off a bit last evening to leave work. Biked along Four Mile Gallop (much too majestic and fast for a run) going home, until George Mason when I switched to the W&OD (was not 100% sure it was clear of water under GM, but was saw it full of debris) for a while. Watched the burgeoning river the whole way home. wow. The only ford that was not overflowing to the point of invisibility was the one north of Glen Carlin Park that is no longer part of a trail. I was surprised to see the one south of Glen Carlin Park overflowing - that on almost never is. I did return to Four Mile Gallop Trail after Rt 50. The pass under Carlin Springs looked like the water receded a few minutes before I arrived, but it was passable. The Wilson underpass, of course, was not.
    It was a great ride and watching the power in that water was amazing.

    I don't blame you it was torrential, there a video on Reddit of the flooding along the W&OD of some cyclists wading through water.
