summer storms

a cold front clashed with hot air over our apartment yesterday and the clouds tumbled over each other, shooting up into the dark sky where the two temperatures met. I've never seen anything like it.

trees were uprooted and hail pounded on the tin roof. gutters flooded and people waited under awnings, afraid to venture out into the downpour.

i watched from my balcony as it rumbled over head, ripping across the sky to the north. and as suddenly as it came, it was over. blue sky's returned and the sun beat down as if nothing had happened.

bring on summer storms...
