In 2007 I joined the Cloud Appreciation Society. Not because it was the cool thing to do, but because I was shocked there were other weather geeks out there. I have always been fascinated by storms and in awe of their unharnessed power. Clouds being the more unassuming element of weather are often the most mysterious.
This evening, one hell-of-a storm passed through. It was the kind of weather that left me breathless on the balcony, and more anxious than my dog to get out afterwards. The real secret of a Minnesota thunder storm is the tail end; clouds you can't imagine, and tonight a rainbow.
Because I can't put into words the experience Oscar and I had encountering the rainbow, I won't even try. Some moments are between a girl and her dog.
Clouds are the ultimate "had to be there" moment. They just never look the same digitized! Hope everyone was sheltered from the storm...and that you all got a glimpse of that once-a-summer rainbow.
