We're having some rather unusual weather patterns this summer. During a typical summer, the day starts out beautiful, the clouds build throughout the day and then there's a thunderstorm by late afternoon, which clears up fairly quickly. This summer it's been unpredictable. Some days it's been raining early in the morning, mid-morning, early afternoon or in the evening. I snapped this picture the other day when I was heading home for lunch --- and got caught in an unexpected downpour.
