Downpour

SDP  8-30-11
In the summer here, chances are pretty good it will rain every day in the afternoon. Recently, we've been having severe thunderstorms. In fact, I think the building where I work was struck by lightning last week. With the fire alarm piercing, we were forced outside near the driving rain where more lightning was streaking across the sky. No damage to the building; no injuries....and, I went on to take this photo of a different storm the following day as I navigated my way home through a curtain of rain.   As I sat at this traffic light watching the rain pelt the windshield, I was so excited (and appreciative) knowing I was just minutes from pulling into a (dry) attached garage.

I don't know why I like rain shots!

Yes! I love my garage! I like the way the 2 red traffic lights mimic the tail lights. Was that intentional?

Uh-oh, I think I see a bright blue Seminole Gulf locomotive heading your way. You're going to be stuck in the rain a little while longer... :)

I like this picture, the wet glass, the car´s rear lights. I don´t know but, great shot indeed.

I hope it is also raining an hour to the south of you. FM doesn't seem to be getting its fair share of the summer rains.

Lucky for you about the lightning, you could pass the rain this way please.
