Rain is one thing...

... but hail is a whole new level of pain at freeway speeds.
I made a quick mission up to SLC today to pick up the new blacklistVISUAL stickers that Queen at Wooden Robots had printed up for me.  They're fantastic.  Made a couple quick sidetrips into the SLC Ducati and HD Stealerships to check in vain, yet again, to see if somehow somebody had decided to make a leather jacket that wasn't fitted to short, fat Americans.  No dice... being tall and skinny sucks, apparently.
So I hopped the freeway to run back home.  Somewhere around 45th, the skies opened up and reaped hell.  I toughed it out for as long as I could, but had to give up by 106th when the hail kicked in.
By the time I got under some temporary gas station shelter, I was so drenched that I could probably have won the wet-t-shirt contest in some skinny-white-boy lovin' bar... probably in West Hollywood.  Anyway... I sure wish somebody made jackets that fit me.

I have a Jacket Homie!
You were on 106th 2.5 minutes from my house. Oh yeah, you have that cell phone than is only good for throwing outta 3 story buildings, not so much for callin'.

Hail sucks, I got caught just outside of Helena in a nice hailstorm a few years ago, ended up with cuts on the bridge of my nose from it.
