... Tornado Watch number 370 is cancelled for Lee.. Highlands... Charlotte

Wow what a night of lightening and thunder...then early this morning rain. Not just your nice gentle soaking rain. No this was car wash rain! Blinding rain. We even had tornado warnings! Well I guess it is a preparation test for Hurricane season. At least I don't have to add water to my pool!

So since it was still lightening when I went to ride this morning I chose not to ride. I'm sure the rubber tires will insulate me enough that I will not attract lightening but I didn't want to test my theory. Hey I know old Ben flew a kite in the lightening and survived but just barely. Ben didn't live in the lightening capital of the world.

So it was raining at lunch time ...the pool was closed due to lightening in the area... so no swimming today. My game plan is to leave work a little early to ride. I came in late so I have to leave early to make up for it. I'll have tot ride alone since Tony has to work. So 25 miles tonight after work.

Sometimes it's nice to have some time to yourself, well, not counting the road kill. Don't forget your phone, though!

Came in late so leave early? I like that! Watch those storms. You all had your share last year.

I like the Came in late so leave early idea too! That must be part of the triathlete creed as well.

Sometimes nothing is as dramatic and extreme as Florida weather. At least it can clear up as quickly as it gets bad!
