Touching a stormy sky

After the storm

The big news around here is the surprise rainstorm that descended on Toronto late yesterday afternoon, leaving record-setting floodwaters and more than a few stranded commuters in its wake, including one unfortunate Ferrari.

Another none-too-subtle reminder that despite our propensity to pave the planet with urban sprawl and technology, Ma Nature remains largely in charge. And she has no problem reminding us of that every once in a while.

The storm that hit London last month didn't leave as much water behind, but it still created some drama with a tornado warning followed by reports of a funnel cloud that, thankfully, didn't touch down. I took a stroll with our daughter afterward, because the backside of a late evening storm is always a thing of beauty, and it sure doesn't hurt to experience it with one of the munchkins.

I'm already counting the days to the next storm. You?

It's been storming every day in Columbus for more than a week, Carmi.
