And rain it did. As soon as I had gone a little over a mile, it started to pour. The rain itself and getting wet were not really a big problem. But I run with my cell phone and of course didn't bring my rain jacket or at least a plastic bag for my phone. So I knew it wouldn't be too long before me and my phone would be soaked. So I stopped the run. But I did drive around and check out the road conditions. They are starting to look really good for running. Tomorrow the forecast is for sunshine, so I am going to try for a run around the lake. I'm bringing a plastic bag for my phone and maybe even a raincoat just in case.
I did see a very peaceful Long Tailed Jaeger resting comfortable on the road. He was kind enough to pose for me long enough to get a picture. Maybe spring is finally here on the North Slope, now that summer is almost here according to the calendar.
