Flooding brings first Ride of season

So as everyone probably knows Mid TN got hit by a LOT of rain which has caused major flooding. At this time it is difficult to get into Nashville from Clarksville and parts of Clarksville (as is Nashville) are still under water. Last night Clarksville had a curfew in effect from 8pm till 4am and there is talk of it happening again tonight (WTH). Our house came through ok-ish. The room that was originally a garage but then converted during building got flooded a little and by the time the wet/steam vac was finished I had picked up 15 gallons of water from the carpet although there was more on the floor and 2 days later it is still drying. We had water rush down from the storm drain and washed away our onion patch plus I believe got under the house a little so we are allowing that to air out and will check to make sure all duct work is good in a few days.

I tried to get to work yesterday but failed. Got as far as Briley Pkwy and had to turn back. 55 miles in a 60 mile trip, it sucked. Because I was then off on vacation I tried to make thew most of the day and when Jen suggested a bike ride I took her up on the chance. Stats are below but lets say I was surprised how well I felt after a 20 mile ride. I was hoping to have the stats pulled from my IPhone also as I have an app to track but I had it in direct sunlight which the phone did not like (it overheated and rebooted *LOL*). Perhaps next time we will get some results.

Here is route we took. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=3698783

Stats of the Ride (which I hope are first of many)
Distance:- 19.41 miles
Time:- 1hr 25mins 51secs
Ave Speed: 13.57mph
Ave Cadence:- 61rpm
Max Speed:- 25.42mph

As a side note I am trying hard to get my food back on track while I did have a 2400 calorie day yesterday if I go by spark people and factor in my mowing also I burned 2200 calories... go figure. Now if it just reflects in a loss on Sunday (Oh yeah weighed myself last Sunday and I had hit 257lbs..BAD but it is the line in the sand... this week WILL be down)
