The weather report this morning said a chance of scattered showers. Tell that to the thousands of spectators who cycled to the top of Woody Gap and other locations along today's Tour de Georgia route. Lightning felled a tree only 100 yards from one group. Marble sized hail pelted everything in sight. It was a truly epic day for weather.
Regardless, the pro cyclists rolled on. By the time they finished they looked like death warmed over, but these guys are used to that feeling. It's been a great race and the crowds are massive. The sport of pro cycling is alive and well in Georgia.
I got another piece of great news last night. The Race is one of three finalists for the Ben Franklin Awards in the catagory of "Best New Voice - Fiction." The winner will be announced in early June. I'll cross my fingers, and my "T's".
