Started out with an overcast day. Once I approached Grass Valley, the weather cleared up and got nice. Lots of other two-wheelers out today.

Got gas in Grass Valley, and I hear my name. It's Spring! I haven't seen her since Deaf Awareness Day a couple of years before. Almost home, and it looks like a doggy got hurt. Good thing there were people to help.
