On the golf course tonight I knew that a full round would not be completed. Although I did not know if I would get wet, I did know that at some point there would be lightning in those clouds. The wind was picking up as the front approached with a varying degree of darkness in the clouds that trailed. I teed off and hit the ball a little higher than I desired and the wind actually stopped it’s forward progress and pushed it back before it returned to terra firma. Then came the sound of the horn, the blast that signals us to clear the course. Sure enough, lightning had shown itself. Game Over!
After a bite to eat, we rushed through the downpour and splashed through the parking lot to our cars. On my way home which was against the flow of the storm, I emerged on the backside to see a double rainbow. It was quite bright and the vibrant colors had me wishing that the camera was in the car. By the time I got home, this was the best shot that I could get of the rainbow’s remains.
The humidity of the 94 degree day made it quite obvious that storms would be bubbling up at some point. They came about a hour to early for my game, or an hour too late the way I was playing. In any case, there is a tornado watch for the next two hours. Another day of turbulent summer weather in Minnesota.
