Welcome Back Copper

Rode through rain, freezing high winds and then some snow flurries today. Not that bizarre it always snows here first few weeks of March. I remember because I did at least one bike race with snow every March that I can remember. You don't foget that.
20 miles from my house got pulled over at noon by Johnny Law he must've been wondering where I'd been. He was real nice yelling at me to remove my helmet like I just robbed a convenience store. Seems I didn't have my lights on during the day. Said sorry been riding back from Southern California and out of habit didn't turn them on. You can ride without lights during the day there. I tried to explain my generator charging issues, saving the battery, just trying to get home etc.
Well this isn't California.. The bike shouldn't be on the road with no lights- slaps a 124 dollar ticket in my hand, have a nice day. Snow flurries melting on the paper as I stare at it.
