Summer Thunderstorms

I walked out of work yesterday and marveled at this unbelievable sky.

How beautiful is that?

It makes me feel small and in awe because the heavens are looking down at me, powerful and quiet. Hiding secrets in the clouds. Whispering, let's have some fun with the littles below.

And then, two blocks before I got home, the quiet broke and out came a downpour -- summer thunderstorm season.

I waited under a tree for a while, but the rain drops only got fatter and faster, so I ran as fast as I could, clutching my bag and yelling to my mom on the phone about this crazy rain storm I was in. A guy sitting on his porch chuckled as I ran by, hopping to avoid the puddles and small rivers.

When I got home, it was like I had just taken a shower with all my clothes on. And my bag. And my phone. I was drenched and my phone may or may not be working correctly. But I'm glad for these small, fun experiences (though I'd really rather watch the summer thunderstorms from inside with a hot cup of tea).
