I ran yesterday morning in spring like conditions. It was 45 when I left the house and a warm 50 when I came back. I did an easy 6.5 miles.
I was very glad I didn’t put my run off until the afternoon as our sunny sky with a slight breeze turned into high winds, hail, thunder, lightning and finally sideways snow. It was so funny to see the snow and hail coming down and have it be in the middle of a thunder storm!
This was taken in the middle of the thunderstorm. I think it is the first time I have ever seen snow in a thunderstorm.
Happily we only lost power for about 15 minutes. The kids however still wanted to play cards by candlelight after the power came on, so we did. Little cowboy kept proclaiming it the best night ever.
|not a seance just some UNO|
The snow continued to come sideways for several hours and this morning it is cold, super windy and not very hospitable out there. I may just keep my run inside today…just a hunch. I can handle cold and snow, but the nasty wind is not my friend. That and everything has a crazy layer of ice on it. I am so close to half marathon number 5...12 days..I don't want to risk a slip and fall on the ice injury.
Have you ever seen a thunderstorm with snow?
at what point do you wuss out on running outside?
