Dec 1st – More showers but manageable

The sky at 10am was full of large cu, a sure sign that the day was going to overdevelop. We launched at 1010 with JT flying we drifted down to Auob Lodge around 190 to the SE. I flew Northwards, flying 168k without throwing a circle. By which time showers and thunderstorms were developing around us. After crossing a line which doused us in heavy rain accompanied by a several flashes, we chose to return early and celebrate John’s week of gliding with a few beers.

The picture shows one those enormous showers.
