And yes, thankfully it's not cold when it rains here.

I got caught in the rain riding home from work last month, but the water could NOT wipe away my big smile as I rode home.
Dude. Not cold? I ride up Central Oahu between Wahiawa and Whitmore. The WCF can bring it down in the 40's on some mornings. Dang! I gotta double up with a jacket and a rain coat I found at Walmart. Of course it doesn't help that I always wear shorts, rain or shine.

Btw, I use a moped/scooter or my old Fuji mountain/city bike for my short ride to work. Just found out I'll be getting a sizeable tax return and will be using a small portion to build my first motorized bike. I still like the idea of electric, but isn't looking like a practical option right now. I'm going with the biggest 2 stroke I can find and a shift kit.
