I had been in the house for days when I decided I really had to get out last Thursday. The news had said showers in the morning with gradual clearing after 1 PM.
I looked out the window a little after 1 and the sky did indeed seem to be brightening so out I went.
Once outside I noticed that the sky not visible from the kitchen window was dark and foreboding but in my capacity as freakin' self proclaimed meteorologist I decided the storms were headed north.
I was already out and the cupboards were bare so off I went.
Not even 10 minutes later ...
The first drops hit the car so hard I jumped. Even with the wipers on high it was impossible to see. Many of us pulled into the first parking lot we could find and just sat.
For 40 minutes.
The streets flooded so quickly.
The excitement never ends.
