Tempestas

The title is Latin for storm, in case you were wondering.

And man was there a storm yesterday.  I don't know how many of you experienced it, but I got some of the really heavy rain.  No tornados touched down here, but I saw a picture of a high school completely destroyed.

Rainbows!
Took this picture before I went back home from guitar practice, rainbows are so surreal.  The whole ordeal yesterday was crazy, it was almost bright out because the cloud cover was so thin!

But that rain, that was the hardest we've had all year.  I almost hydroplaned my car coming off the dam, the tires started to spin a bit.

And now, lovely Ohio is cold again.  What a bummer.

Missing the warm weather,

    The warmth before spring hardly ever lasts, good luck staying warm.

  7. Well it did rain here in Australia for two days, heavy rain to be precise. Like real heavy but I don't if they're related. But still, at least you're not affected as much as other people.

  12. I'd rather have heavy rains than thunder storms. Heavy rains might cause a flood but thunder storms are still way more scary.

  16. Great pic, and be sure to drive safe when it's wet, it can turn into a bad situation quickly.
