End of the storm


End of the storm, originally uploaded by mjbrooks10.

I left work yesterday and the wind was picking up, the clouds were moving in and it started to drizzle. By the time I got in my car and drove out of the parking lot, the light from the sun vanished, being swallowed by the enormous clouds rolling in. My car felt like it was moving with the gust of wind and by the time I reached river road, the rain started to fall. A little while later, it turned into hail, and this wasn't your normal hail...It sounded like I was driving through a golf range and golf balls were slamming against my car. I actually thought my windshield was going to cave in. I dropped my car into neutral and just coasted for a little while, the windshield wipers were on full blast but I still couldn't see a thing. Up ahead the sun was fighting back, just trying to break through the monstrous clouds, and finally it snuck through. At the end of the road it was like a movie, the light was near, and the storm was almost over. In a matter of minutes it was finished, no more hail, no rain, no clouds...The sun was shining and the wind stopped. When I pulled into my neighborhood, not a sign of rain in sight. But through the trees in the backyard a rainbow appeared and I ran inside got my camera and snapped a few shots. Unfortunately, the quality wasn't that good so I did a little manipulating to bring out the rainbow's hue.

Hope you enjoy.
