ominous

taken from my old apartment balcony, circa 2009. God that summer was stormy. it's one of the most prominent things in my mind when i think back on it. (that and it was the summer I met mike! cue awwww). i'd leave for work in the morning and it would be as dark as 5 pm in the fall. and then if it cleared for a bit, all of a sudden the wind would bring in these great big dark clouds and just when you thought the sky couldn't hold it anymore, it would burst. the down pour would last about 15 minutes, but the humidity dried the sidewalks within half an hour of the rainfall.

we're far from summer on this chilly spring night - but i was browsing through my photos and this one in particular jumped out at me.
