I didn’t ride to work today (the Greater Lafayette assigned day to observe Bike To Work Day) for a couple of reasons – one was the thunderstorms predicted for late afternoon. Well, by 4:30 they were still 30 miles or so away according to the Weather Channel radar, so I came home early to grab a quick ride.
I was able to leave early because my employer put on the Spring Fling – sort of a grown up field day. A lunch is provided, and activities including softball, swimming, euchre, and a nature walk are organized (I didn’t participate – too much work to do). The best part is that no one really watches the time clock, so working until 5:00 not expected.
Anyway, I decided to take the Granville Bridge Route before the light show started. When I was about halfway to the bridge, a little sprinkle started, but it never developed into anything. I guess the big storms kind of petered out.
Now, after 8:30, we’re seeing a little bit of lightning in the distance.

P.S. Why the accordion player? Back when I was in college, I knew a girl who was a virtuoso accordionist (don’t laugh – she was quite good – plus, she was kind of hot). She played lots of classical music, including the piece that played in the Wizard of Oz movie during the tornado. I always sing that song when a storm is brewing.
