Weather Is Fun!

We had weather today! In fact, we had weather all day long. First, I woke up to gentle rain and gray light--which was wonderful, especially since I had the day off work and didn't have to get up. I did anyway because I was awake, but I didn't have to. Then it cleared up for a while, and I went out to Clear Creek for a few hours, which I enjoyed even more than usual since everything looked different in the rainy light and under a super overcast sky; all the new green leaves and flower petals seemed to glow. By the time I made it back to my car, thunder had started to rumble. I got home just in time, since storms were moving in fast. We even had a tornado warning for a while, and a tornado watch and severe thunderstorm warning for hours.

Exciting. I love this time of year. I haven't done much writing today; I'm still working on a serial twitter story to send to Thaumatrope. In its own way, it's fully as difficult to write as an ordinary story. Each post has to be entertaining on its own, has to contribute to the overall story, and has to make sense--all in 140 characters. Challenging, and more fun than rewriting the time travel story!

I love the way new leaves seem to glow in the rainy season. We had the same effect here this morning.

I love the rain as well. In fact, a walk through the woods at night, with some rain and lightning would be my idea of fun. I just hate working in the rain, which I have to do since my job is mostly outdoors.

We had rain too. I went out for a nice brain-clearing walk in it. :)

Jameson--Ooh, rain at night is the best! Although I'm not sure I'd want to get out and walk around in it.

Cate--Great! Rain for everyone! I just picked up my new contacts, so now I can walk around in the rain (if I feel so inclined) without needing little windshield wipers.

no rain here. Only one outbreak of severe weather so far. Can't wait for more. As long as no one gets hurt.

Jamie--I hope you get a cracking good thunderstorm (that causes no damage) soon. Nothing's better than a really good storm!
