A Quick Thunderstorm

Alright. Alright. I know I just wrote about waking up to the sun shining being a great thing, and it is. I still hold firm to that statement. But I think there is something to be said about a quick midday thunderstorm. Maybe it is the relief that comes with the blue skies that follow.
As I hinted at before, I’m spending my Easter at Camden Yards watching the Yankees take on the Orioles. A nasty storm just rolled through here. It went from sunshine to dark thundering clouds that were shooting out lightning bolts at what seemed like every two minutes. Still I was seated in my not-under-cover seat until they kicked me out just watching the storm. (Not to mention the rain felt really good on my sunburned shoulders. I told you it was sunny before) Needless to say there was a rain delay.
Just watching this storm and the energy (no pun intended) is very humbling. You can see its power and the destruction it can do. That’s why it is always good to watch from a safe, inside location.
But out in the staircase, where they allowed me to stand, I could see the blue skies in the distance. It was relieving to know that we were going to finish this extra inning tie game.
