I love how the sky turns white when it rains here. We get a huge thunder and lightning storm once a day, pretty much every single day. It starts with the wind whipping through the apartment – papers and curtains blowing everywhere. Then, the sky turns dark. A few seconds later it begins…
The rain comes down so hard that the sky becomes completely opaque. We rush around closing all the windows and doors to protect our many Persian carpets.
And then about a half hour later, it’s completely clear – blue skies and warm again.
It adds a nice element of surprise to the day, to say the least.
