Tricia and I really wanted to play
Round Robin tennis at Sanlando tonight.
I called the courts and they said that they were open and dry.
I looked online and the weather service said there was only a
10% chance of rain.
The odds looked quite good
except for the fact that it was raining at home.
We decided to go.
You probably have to live in Florida
to understand the mentality of setting off in a rain storm
It was torrential.
It never stopped.
We kept on going.
When we were actually about 5 miles away from the courts,
we could see the edge of the storm.
It looked like the edge of the storm was at the courts.
It was even still sprinkling,
but only the tiniest bit,
when we finally arrived.
before we even got out of the car we heard three horns blow.
Tricia told me that she had read that meant there was
lightning in the area and to
get off the courts.
We wondered if we should leave.
we didn’t take our racquets,
but we did walk over to the office.
You know what they said?
They said those three horns were the
and that we could play.
We had a beautiful evening
and a great time playing
on the other side of the storm.
