Waco Postponed = Gumbo

Texass has been in a drought for months. Camping has been difficult because you can't build a fire. Burn bans are everywhere. Now the other extreme has hit. Rain.

This weekend was supposed to be the Waco race. The venue's been hit with over 6-inches of rain in the last two days. Typically, races are rain-or-shine but apparently this one was too much.

I hate to admit this, but I'm kinda glad. I was on the fence about even going. I love riding at Cameron Park, but I'm not sure I'd have much fun racing it. A mud race would have been fun though. I like rooting in the mud. Brings many fond memories of being a kid to light.

The net result: It's cold. It's rainy. I've got some time. I'm making gumbo tonight!
