    Heavy storms were moving through the area all day. I swam with light grey clouds but constant thunder rumbling in the distance for the duration of practice. When I got out I saw that where it was light grey clouds above me, all around was dark purple/slate grey clouds. Even caught a flash of lightning as I headed to the locker room. During CORE7 the heavens opened and it stormed like crazy. I got lucky to get in a 55 minute workout in the only period where there weren't severe storms!
