ok, the Chicago area has the BEST thunderstorms. I had the wake-up call buzz me at 4:50am for swimming. the sky as full of lightening. a constant lightening, a constant ripping of a new hole in the universe. fabulous. the rain poured down, and I waited for my boss to meet me to catch a cab. he never showed and I decided to go back to bed instead of chasing down a call in the downpour. but wow, ive not had a good storm like the one this morning since I lived in Ohio.
