A small amount of precipitation was precipitating when I walked to my motorized vehicular transport.
As I headed west the 4 miles to Oakland Lake Park I saw lightning strikes in the distance.
The closer I got to Fosdic Lake the larger the amount of precipitation precipitating became.
By the time I got to the Oakland Lake Park eastern parking lot the rain had segued into heavy duty Texas-style downpour mode.
With lightning striking to the north of me, lightning striking to the south of me, lightning striking to the west of me.
I looked through my rain streaked windshield at Fosdic Lake, and its army of ducks, and decided it was likely not a good idea to wander around Fosdic Lake, under a bumbershoot, with lightning making random strikes.
So, on this very rare occasion, I let common sense get the better of me and bailed on dodging lightning bolts striking around Fosdic Lake.
Obviously I am now back under cover, in my abode, with the rain no longer falling. I think I am now in for the duration of the rest of today.
