I thought I could sneak in a scooter run before the predicted rain hit today. I was wrong. Maybe 1/2 way through our run a light drizzle started. Then at about 2/3 of the way through our run, it started raining more earnestly with a little thunder and lightning. Fortunately for us, the pouring rain didn’t start until we were tucked back into the car, but I still had to drive in it.
The rain did not show up very well in pictures, although for some reason it made the front wheel SUPER loud on this video. At this point we were almost back to the car, probably within 1/4 mile, and the rain was making Squash a little silly but Maisy was having NONE of it so there are a couple nice little Maisy bumps in here.
It was actually not unpleasant to scooter in the rain, since it was warm enough not to get chilled. The only thing I didn’t like was the thunder and lightning which was pretty infrequent and we were on our way back to the car when it started anyway, so there wasn’t really anything to be done about it. The dogs aren’t noise sensitive, I just didn’t want to get crisped. Anyway, I’ve always wondered/worried how the scooter would handle in the rain, if it would skid out easily or not, but I’m happy to report it handled just fine (if noisily).
