Mesquite Storm

19 Jun

It happened on Tuesday.  A lightning bolt struck the transformer on the pole in the back of the building.  I was sitting in my chair talking to a friend on the phone at noon when it happened.  There was no electricity for five hours.   It rained sideways.  I watched as a kid rode his bike down the street while the rain almost pushed him over.  

After the rain is the most beautiful time.  Another storm followed and when the storm moved East, clouds remained in the sky overseeing the close of day. 

Mesquite, Texas.
