We witnessed some wicked storms, to the north of us, yesterday afternoon. We were sitting in the sun watching the rain fall on the valley below. I hope everyone in the area is ok and the gardens got plenty of watering. We listened to claps of thunder for a good two hours. I didn't see any lightening. I am not the biggest fan of thunder storms, but my husband loves them. He gets really excited when he hears a big one rolling in. It was a warmer day yesterday. The high was 70º with a low of 52º. The humidity was pretty thick. Remember, on high humidity days, you need to drink more water than usual. You will sweat a lot and it is important to stay hydrated. Have a great day and happy hiking.
