|Under-the-visor view of a rain shower|
Rain during my commute is rare. Pouring rain even rarer. So I think this may have been the first time since I've worn this helmet that it poured rain. It felt wonderful, this cool water pouring on me on a hot August afternoon. Deliriously sensual. Like, I wanted passing vehicles to drench me.
The rain started when I started. The sky was dark, so I wore my usual glasses, not the tinted cycling ones. I noticed immediately that the visor spared the glasses from both direct rain and subsequent fogging. They stayed totally clear the whole ride. This was in contrast to the last, memorable storm, during which I lacked a visor, and a mixture of water and sunscreen pouring into my eyes and across my glasses essentially blinded me. That downpour was heavier and more relentless than this one, but I still felt like the visor made all the difference.
