The rattle of the windows and the flickering of lightning coming through the curtains made it difficult to get out of bed this morning. We had a storm roll through about 6 a.m. that would make any adult want to pull the covers over their head and hide. Chris loves the thunderstorms that roll in, I am not such a big fan. I still play the game of counting from the crack of the thunder until the lightning strike. It still makes me a little uneasy when they happen at the same time. I will admit, the vegetation turns an extremely vibrant shade of green. It was a rather mild Memorial Day. The high was 64º with a low of 51º. The mountain was not as busy as I thought it would be. I guess a lot of folks were heading home after their long weekend. If you are in the area and hiking up today, make sure you have some sort of rain gear or poncho. It is looking like it is going to be a wet day.
