Oh no, it was not drizzle. It was heavy rain paired with some ridiculous wind gusts. This is the start of the downpour at North Avenue beach.
Rain levels were equivalent to these lovely Google images
This continued for nearly 4 hours. The rain stopped and the sun came out to tease us for about 15 minutes before it began raining again.
Oh, and this happened too! Over a dozen waterspouts on Lake Michigan accompanied us on the run.
Despite us teetering on the edge of insanity and delirium, you know what was the best part of all? I could have done it all AGAIN.
Oh yea, bring it on, Mother Nature.
