Beautiful weather greeted our start of the round of golf today. Before we got very far into the course, the rain started. Then lightning became a real issue. After sitting in the shelter of a building on the course for quite a while, having lightning strikes near us the vote was to leave at the first chance. Finally a break in the heavy rain and away we went. At one point the green behind our shelter had water running off it about 2 inches deep.
Wally treated us to hotdogs and drinks. Thank you very much Wally. After a little conversation the weather let up some more and we scattered for the hills. In this picture are three golfers and me. It is left to right Bob, Bill, TheOFM and Wally. These are some very neat folks to play golf with. We will be back next week to use our rainout passes for another try at hitting little white or yellow golf balls to the place intended.
After I left the course, Academy sports store was the next stop. The special long sleeve shirt I wanted to look at was in stock. OK I thought. A quick check of the price tag and a big NEVER MIND. No wonder those shirts are good. A long sleeve cheap worn thrift shop white dress shirt will have to do for me when out fishing or yakking.
On the way home, the roads were flooding at three different places due to the excessively heavy rain. My high road clearance truck was wonderful to be driving. The campground had not received any rain when I got home. A few minutes later the rain hit with a vengeance, but only for about thirty minutes. This evening it has been less hot and the trailer even got an airing out.
Tomorrow is an unknown as to what activity will happen. Be assured that a severe effort will be made to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM
