Last night a friend and I were out floating on the local lake when we started noticing clouds building to the north. It wasn’t long before the heads starting topping out and lightning began to shoot down to the ground. Of course that means it’s time to get off the water. No questions asked.. Well, yeah, but… The clouds were moving west to east and staying north. They were at least 10 to 15 miles off. Well, we decided to stay out on the water and watch the lightning.. Now I know what some people would say about that… but I’ve never believed in rules for rules sake. Sometimes it’s all about judgement. Sometimes it’s all about measured risk. Yeah, we probably should have rushed to shore.. but wow, those moments on the water last night were all about living. Beautiful.
