Whats new: another stormy weekend? We can’t be disappointed, but use the opporturnity to do something different. Like a morning hike in the light rain up Albany Hill with the heavy pack. And maybe tomorrow more sprint intervals up the 10% grade on the top section of the hill on the bike during a break in the storm.
Last night, we Albanians enjoyed quite a hail and thunderstorm. Flashes and booms just one to several seconds apart indicated a giant cumulus overhead, and hail came down violently for a good while. The street was covered in white, some mounds of hail below the downspouts. Here is our front walk:
Here are more pics of our bay area town with the rare hail:
