Neither thunder nor lightning can stop my golf game except....





I used to say only thunder and lightning could stop my golf game. I was wrong. Hailstones would. In Manila where playing in 98 degrees humid weather was normal, I was so looking forward to a much cooler game in Northern California. 

Our hosts Rey and John arranged our 2 flights to tee off at Rancho Solano in Fairfield.  I was excited as the last time i played Rancho Solano was two years ago where we played 36 holes straight.



It was cool but sunny. After a couple of holes I noticed that the clouds started to show a dark “greenish” color. Apparently typical of hail clouds... 




It started out lightly much like a soft drizzle. Then it started to get stronger. Little balls, like irregular lumps of ice clumped together raining over us. Falling faster and larger in size until they started to hurt.


John was gung ho and still tried to putt....


.....  but realized it was going to be useless.

And thats when I realized it was time quit. Only hailstones can stop me from playing.
