I set out in the sunshine and heat. It was upper 70's in the shade but the humidity was thick, so it felt like 90! Heading out the parkway and up Avondale, I was planning to loop back on Rose Hill for a lollipop loop. Plans changed when the thunder started rumbling through. I decided to turn down Concord and try to outrun the storm.
I was successful for a while, but when I took a left on 74A, the wind picked up and the curtain of rain was closing in. I ducked in to Dollar General for a little while. When the rain let up, I headed up the road again. When the next band of rain came through, I hid out at the produce stand. After about 15 minutes, the rain let up and I took off.
I made it home mostly dry, just a little damp from road spray, but even more importantly, didn't get hit by lightning!
Home sweet home.
