My 2004 ET4 on Bertha at Flagler

Key West is filled with scooters so they tend to be the background to my life. In this case as I work nights I was out on lunch break in the middle of the night playing with my camera.

Rain

No snow in Key West, ever, which is rather embarrassing as the rest of The Deep South as reporters call it, is now officially frozen.
The other great thing is most rain falls in the warm months:



This week's cold front may get down to sixty at night, but it should be back to the 80s by Sunday. In any event I shall commute on two wheels through the worst of it come what may.

I took this pic this morning but couldn't get my scooter in it. You won't see this in Key West.

Heard about the crazy weather. On the other side of the country it is considerably warmer.

This would be excellent as a vacation. Briefly. I spent a week in a snowdrift in North Dakota one family Christmas and went mad on the second day. Never recovered either.

Cool Dude



This guy epitomizes for me the odd diversity of Key West's "One Human Family" philosophy. Nattily dressed unlike the stereotypical ratty waterfront bum and somehow riding a Vino 125 with a wide brimmed fedora. ATGATT is a concept not frequently seen in this town. If that annoys you let me refer you back to the city philosophy.

I understand the individual's right for ATGATT or not... but, how does one keep a fedora on one's head while riding?? If I am just running to the mailbox (about 5 blocks from our house), I may rotate my ballcap so it till stay on my head at 15 mph... but, a fedora? Tacks? Staples?

Part of a toupee fedora combo held on by super poli-grip.
