First Big Epic Day of the Summer

What a great day. Early on the sky went from big billowy clouds and blue sky to a major downpour. All the droplets splashed down and splashed up, which immediately went horizontal…smoke on the water and less than 100 ft of visibility. A first for me…a white out in the summer!
Soon the rain cleared…the wind took a breath and then blew like stink till dark. So many smiles. Even those that got off work at 5 were treated. 8-12s worked. So much fun.
