Moderate Risk

Today is a crazy weather day in New England. There is a serious low moving across the eastern half of the country and zeroing in on New York. I am just getting back from Mount Snow. I was on the hunt for content for Velogothic at the Eastern States Cup downhill. I wasn't going to go, but I can never seem stop myself. Didn't rain much until I pulled into the main lodge. Sitting in my car next to a few race support vehicles as sheets of rain turned the parking lot into a bog, I knew there was no way I was shooting today. My camera was packed in a Camera Armor Seattle Sling, but there was no way to shoot in the intense precip. The conditions were epic and almost impossible to turn away from as fog obscured the top of the mountain and storms swirled in the distance. Would have made for incredible pictures. But sometimes you have to know when to walk away.

Took almost two and a half hours to get home as the NOAA radio kept firing up with tornado watches and severe thunderstorm warnings. There is another meet at Mount Snow in a few weeks. Hope the weather is better, but not perfect. [Wink]
