|For the last three days, I've been getting regular emails from the weather service telling me of flash flood warnings. Turn on the radio in the car, and they talk about huge rainstorms in Utah Valley. Yet for the past three days, I don't think I've seen a single drop of rain. Until today.
I had pretty much started to assume that there wasn't going to actually be anything interesting happening today. I slept through church, and my morning was a lazy combination of laying in bed and watching movies. I spent most of the day with no shirt on, because it's been so darn hot and sticky. I was out in the kitchen listening to music, eating lunch, reading a book. Typical multi-tasking, Jo-Pete style. I'm not sure exactly when the rain started because my headphones are nice and big and comfy and block out most outside sounds. Slowly, however, I became conscious of a dull rumbling sound like wind through leaves on an autumn day. I took off the headphones to welcome the roar of water streaming from the clouds, striking the roof with a welcome vengence.
I ran back to my bedroom to grab a shirt.
There's more to read. Read the extended entry.
