QIC: Grovetucky

PAX: Mariah, Mogul, Brain, Ahhh, Matlock, Rash

YHC awoke to thunder @0330 prompting a look at the forecast which called for 70% chance of thunderstorms at 0500 hour. I have no desire to work out outside during a lightning storm. However, I signed up to Q, so I went back to sleep hoping for the best. As I awoke at 0445, I was pleased to hear the rain had stopped and the birds were chirping. My lightning storm VQ will have to wait for another day!!

At 0530 the disclaimer was given as late arriving PAX came into the parking lot hot. Mosey with high knees and butt-kicks to the playground for COP:

SSH x 30 IC

Sun Gods x 10 IC forward and backwards
