Some rain, some sun. Set out early (10:00 AM!) to get in a longer ride. Got caught in a shower right away and wished I taken along more rain gear, but the showers passed quickly and I never got cold. Wind was out of the west to start. When I got to Independence it was out of the north, but by the time I got to Helmick road it was southwest.
The ferry was closed due to high water and maybe too many logs floating down river. Tress and branches were down everywhere from a recent ice storm that didn't get us in Corvallis. Helmick Park was closed and lots of devastation on Helmick Road.
