It was about 5:30pm and the city went dark. I mean the clouds rolled in and it looked like it was midnight. I left my office to walk home and the lightning started, then loud claps of thunder, then Hail! I was trying to walk fast, so that I didn't have to fight the rain, but the floodgates opened and the rain came pouring down.
Me being driven home in the cab! (just kidding)
Now, the clean up efforts begin.
