The weather was pretty wild for OC on Thursday night. As I was driving to the Great Park in Irvine for the Thursday night bike races, I could see lightning bolts peppering the sky every few minutes. Once I got out on the track, it started to rain a bit on us. Heavy summer rain drops. Not many of them, but just enough to speckle my glasses, and make my car look a lot dirtier than it was pretending to be. The races were over, and as I was standing in the parking lot talking to a friend, I could see the sun slowly dropping in the west over top Irvine Great Park balloon. It was one of those skies we don't get too often living in SoCal, and really reminded me more of the skies I've seen in the South. Just had to take it.
