It was a hot, balmy summer night when the skies opened up. We were on the dam in Katonah, NY, so there was no shelter within easy reach with the exception of my friend's car at the far end of the dam. We ran there and jumped into the car soaked.

For reasons unknown, we decided to run around the deserted and dark dam in the thunderstorm sans our clothes. We ran out into the storm, tossed our clothes back into the car and ran down the length of the dam.

The dam was long, but the run was fun.

And boy was the rain cold-- yes, that's my excuse.
