The Day after the Storm

Visions of Rin Tin Tin
The storm that blew through yesterday and into last night deposited a lot of rain and left some really cold air in its wake.  The stiff breeze fought against the abundant sunshine this morning, making the air feel quite chilly.  I don't know if it was the cold, but Ms. Becca had an incredible amount of energy.  She did more running than she has in a long while, up and back on every trail, leaving me to trudge behind.  It's a lot of fun watching her have a good time.
