Empty Roads

Today is a public holiday, designated to celebrate the Queen’s birthday (which is actually on April 21) and sometimes, if I’m lucky, coincides with mine. Not this year - bad luck. However, in a trade off for time off work elsewhere in the year, my employer remains open for business today. The upside is that the drive in to work is a pleasure. There was much more traffic yesterday morning at 8 am riding down Springvale Rd than this morning at a similar time. Today, the road was almost empty. I had planned to ride in for this reason, but the BOM can’t decide how much rain is going to fall today, and when. Not being keen to do a 90 minute commute in the rain, I passed. The sleep in was worth it.
