Bike-commute day 21—to work
The Great Miami bikeway is still flooded by as much as 0.5 meter, at least from Riverscape to the low dam at Monument Avenue. If the week's forecasted chance of showers and thunderstorms doesn't pan out, even that part of the bikeway may be clear within the week. The forecast of showers, though, is for all periods except Wednesday night.
My ride today was almost leisurely, despite a very late start.

Note about the illustration
The line drawings were published online as a video slideshow and captured by me during the playback. The video provides stills from The Art of Frank Patterson by Horace F. Button, which was published 1952 by Temple Press, Ltd.
