Some cool lightning and thunder at the end of my uni ride a few minutes ago.
A few sprinkles for less than a minute - pitter patter on the roof.
Nothing at Pinns yet - that is of course providing you believe it rains at Pinns.

 2 lightning strike fires within a few miles started and put out promptly by CDF. A power outage last night and again this morning.

 I have an extra ground rod to help you balance as you ride JC.

The same system put on quite a show in the Emigrant Wilderness yesterday!

After an intense, three hour session of the "works" on afternoon three, I'd skated with just clouds for a few days. Until yesterday.

Luckily I'd finished hiking for the day (under black, black clouds that should've let go earlier) and set up camp. I got pounded by rain, with constant lightning and thunder. Just pounded.

Both dogs, me, and my gear stayed fairly dry in my one-man tent (can you spell cozy?). And then it let up for an hour (dinner for three, a little tidying up after the last cycle and a few stretches).

Then again, starting at about 8:00. Hours of pounding rain and flashes lighting up the tent. Boom, boom, boom.

Kinda glad to get out today. This morning it looked like a setup for the same again this afternoon. I'm ready for a little civilization anyway.

I rode home yesterday....lightning to the south when I started. Luckily, when I got south, the lightening was to the north east...over where I started. I kept thinking I should wait it out, but I figured it was clearing, where I was riding to. At least my hair was not standing.
Damn rain drops were large!!

Whew!!!
