Summer storms are so lovely, and so site specific. You can see the rain bucketing down over there and know that it will not rain on you, it’s moving away.
This storm felt like a scene from the movie “Independence Day”, where ominous giant alien spaceships blotted out the sun. It was eerie to drive from the light into the dark. And there is always the danger of a cloud like this producing damaging hail.
It’s getting darker by the minute!
It’s just supposed to be a metaphor that a dark cloud is hovering overhead, not a real thing!
But the delicious part of these summer storms is that it cools everything down. The temperature drops 10 degrees or more and there’s a cooling breeze. And after the storm passes there are these wonderful mud puddles to lay about in.
