Thunderbolts and Lightning, Very Very Frightening!
So, what was with the goofy weather in the South Bay today? We were doing one of our last hard rides before the Death ride, and up at the top of Hamilton a storm starts blowing in. As we descend, lots of lightning in the distance. All the way up Sierra (which takes me about an hour), lots of lightning and we could start hearing the thunder. It was hot all day, but we did not get rained on. This was more like a NJ shore summer day than what you expect around here.
Not sure if the lightning started any fires, but it sure looked like it was hitting the ground.
PS: For those of you too young to catch the reference, here's the song it came from:
