The rainbow was the first sign that the rain had started.
I had decided around 2 pm that a thunderstorm was bound to happen that evening. Environment Canada, however, was forecasting clouds only.
I am wondering if they keep their meteorologists chained to their desks. If the weather forecasters had gone outside and felt the 30 degree air, the humidity that surrounded you like a wet blanket, and noticed that their wasn't a hint of a breeze, surely they would have ignored their doppler radar and announced that a storm was imminent. As it was, they didn't update the website about a thunderstorm until the storm had already started.
As long as everyone is safe, I love a good thunderstorm.
And it made the weather for the next day's caper so much better.
