Rare Squabbit sighting on West Old LaHonda

Just in time for Easter, our Tuesday-morning ride spots a Squabbit! Not familiar with Squabbits? It's a cross between a Squirrel and Rabbit, something that looks like a Rabbit but has the suicidal antics of a Squirrel. Proof is in the video!

Was that the high point of the ride? No, not for me. First, it was great just pretending to be functional after very little sleep last night, courtesy of a call from our alarm company, telling us that something triggered an internal sensor in our Los Altos store. At 2:37am. Love that type of phone call. I told them yes, dispatch the police to check it out, and call me back if there were any problems. No call back so it was probably something that fell over and triggered a motion sensor, but as hard as I tried to be motionless myself, my mind was buzzing and I just couldn't get to sleep. Hate that. But at 6:55am I sprang into action, woke up Kevin (who'd been up until, ironically, almost 2:30am due to pain from his kidney stones), and half-zombie-like got out and rode.

Nice morning, medium sized group. Jan, Kevin, Kevin, Eric, George, Karen, Karl & Todd. The sun came out, the roads were dry, and I was able to get just under 28 up Kings. The only real issue with the lack of sleep was a bit less awareness of the wheel in front of me, causing me at one point to suddenly put on my brakes so I didn't go up George's backside, which in turn got a well-deserved audible response out of Eric behind me.

I'm looking forward to getting some sleep tonight!
