I love the rain.
Central Texas thunderstorms are awesome, but usually only last a few minutes (15 on the outside). This one, however, has been cranking away for 45 minutes.
I'm sitting in a third-floor office in northwest Austin, watching the deluge. Looking out over the trees towards downtown Austin, it almost looks like a tropical rainforest -- steamy, swollen raindrops, tons of lightning, and booming thunder. I can barely see buildings across the parking lot, the rain is so heavy.
Impressive. Most impressive.
