It was a little overcast and we started to hear rumbles of thunder.
It started to sprinkle as we neared the car and I got excited about using the Buffin's rain cover for his backpack.
Within minutes of being back in the car we were in a major downpour. Hail started pelting the car and we couldn't see more than 25 feet. I was so thankful we had made it back in time. I can't imagine trying to get down the hill with the Buffin in those conditions. The Lord really had mercy on us! Lesson learned: When you're in the hills and you hear thunder, take it seriously.
