Storm watch

Last night it rumbled for hours here on the east side of Lake Michigan. The heat broke close to 9 pm to everyone's relief. Then the rain commenced. Sheets of it. I sat in a parking lot of a store waiting for a break. Finally I took my shoes off, grabbed a towel and swam to the door. Then I went to see the latest Pirates of the Caribbean which I know nothing about.  We lost power to constant lightning and thunder. A couple of sky-splitters kept us awake.  This was a very picturesque storm with memorable sound effects.
