Suddenly a thunderstorm popped up out of nowhere. It was bright and sunny, nothing on the radar when a dark cloud formed and thunder boomed.  Luckily as it reached the lakeshore the storm died out just as quickly as it had formed and turned into just a gentle sprinkle.  Just a reminder to keep an eye on the sky.  Most storms come from the west over the lake bluff and so you don't see them until they're right on top of you.

We celebrated our not so harrowing escape with a double round of Pitsch. (Well it was a handy excuse, not that we need one.)
