right now I'm having that "can't wait" feeling about getting into the air conditioning at the end of the commute.

Yup. I'm handing over the company truck to a co-worker for a week, and can't wait. I think I'll take the long way over the hill all week, since they're digging up the streets down town.

And they look at you like you're insane, right?

I get that all the time

A guy I know who rides says he is waiting for the humidity to drop ....in NJ ....in the summer! It happens but you miss a LOT of riding if you wait for it. He won't ride in the rain and he won't ride when the temp is below 'cold' whatever that happens to be. I like the guy, i guess we just don't have the same desire to ride at every possible opportunity.

I do miss the "attitude" most Texans have re: the government, individual freedom, etc. Most are fine people IMO.

I always say "I heard a rumour it is just water falling from the sky."

I love the rain, it's fun passing cars running 30 mph with their hazards on.
