It was hot for April. Blustery southwesterly winds kept pumping the temperatures up all day. A cold front was poised to cross the area during the early evening hours with squall line thunderstorms. Wind warnings were out but nothing for severe thunderstorms that I noticed. The water turned a steely gray as the squall approached. The rain preceded the wind and I barely got the canvas covered in time. The weather is a great motivator to not overwork a canvas!
