|The calm before the storm. Literally.|
The grounds crew pulled out the tarps just seconds before the storm arrived. Luke still got free ice cream and the promotions gal told us to come back another night and she would let him race again, but he was pretty disappointed. I, on the other hand, was chosen to do some sort of "dizzy bat" race in the fourth inning and was quite relieved the game was over :)
Davina, my video fails to capture the magnitude of the storm....and it is quite dark, but here it is, for posterity:
I do want to note that toward the end of the storm, there was a lightning strike so close, we could hear a whizzing sound through the air and the force of the thunder hit us right in the chest.
One of the closer calls of my life, probably.
Dollar night doesn't happen again for a few weeks, so Luke has some time to train. We are headed to the track right now. You can't be too careful with South Paw....
