July 14, 2016: Storm
In the summer here, an especially hot day is followed by a storm. A storm is followed by a cool day. Then a beautiful day. Another hot day then follows, and the cycle continues. The storm resets the balance. Clouds block the light, casting a dark shadow as they release torrents of rain that send all friends and neighbors running for cover. The storm does its work in a thunderous effort. When it’s work is complete, the clouds drift away. The heat has given way to a cool day. A beautiful day approaches.
