Did not get up early to swim today. I had decided to get one more short swim in the GSL before staying with my father in law before our trip to San Fran. I drove to the marina around 1800 and there was a nice big dark cloud that started right over the marina all the way into the mountains. Bad sign #1.
The wind was making every flag stand straight out. Bad sign #2. There is a flagpole at the very end of the marina that I've never seen any flag on before. There was one today that was all red except for a black square in the middle. I looked it up and it means "bad storm incoming". Bad sign #3. I tried to talk myself into just staying in the marina and MAYBE if I go out, I'll go with the current, etc etc. A very clear impression went through my mind and body, "Don't be an idiot!!!" I started the car and drove away.
Tomorrow I'll be in S.F. and alive to do a short warmup swim with Suzie. :)
