So much for the first day of spring. I awoke to grey skies and rode across the street for a cup of coffee. As I sat talking to a local rancher (who had an extensive knowledge of Texas wildflowers), I heard a large explosion that almost caused me to spill my coffee. As I turned to look out the window, I heard him say: “Looks like we’re havin’ a bit of thunder”. Then the rain started. Within minutes the parking lot was ankle deep in water. We just don’t have storms like this in California.
Obviously, I’m not going to get any miles in today. I did put on all my rain gear and rode into town to explore the old buildings, shops and restaurants. That took all of 12 minutes. As you can see from the photographs, Navasota isn’t a big town.
