I know it’s cliche to use the weather as a conversation starter, but recently we’ve been getting a lot of thunderstorms. I love summer thunderstorms, though they do disrupt trail running plans. Have I mentioned before that I’m originally from Texas, and then moved to Nevada for five years? I grew up with thunderstorms and downpours, but the entire 5 years I was in Nevada there was ONE rainstorm. It rained (slightly) more often than that, but usually just a drizzle. So I’m enjoying living somewhere with thunderstorms again.
Anyway! Here’s an abrupt segue to the links:
