Racing the storm
Troy, Jeff and I went out last night to try and recon a bit of the GLGA course, but were thwarted again by bad weather. Troy and I noticed the clouds beginning to build up and darken to the South as we rolled through Lincoln. A quick call to Matt confirmed our suspicion (thanks again Matt!). A storm was building near Cortland and was heading due East. As Jeff joined us at the beginning of the Homestead trail we began to discuss our options. Go as far as we can South and then turn East. We got as far as Wagon Train Road before the rain started. Jeff pulled out his phone to check the radar. Yep, not good. We boogied East on Wagon Train and got wet for 10 to 12 miles while being treated to a thunder and lightening show. Eventually we out ran the storm. Screw you storm.
