I got caught in the rain on my ride this evening. I should have turned around earlier but I thought I could make it. It was totally unsafe, but a wonderful experience to ride with the lightning strikes off in the distance and thunderclaps all around me. The bike trail was deserted on my way back and the forest it bends through was dark, with just enough light to see all of the amazingly tall trees. Eighty degrees with light rain falling, fireflies dancing here and there. Thunder booming. It was amazing. I was thankful for all of that beauty and praying for safety from the lightning so I could live to tell Cami and Ellie about it.
