I love summer storms. Particularly ones which come after days and days of overheated, sweaty, high-pollen unpleasantness. This one has been brewing for a week, has been in full flow for at least five hours, and is only now tailing off... and I didn't even have to drive in it.
OK, so it took down all our work computers this morning. But it means I stand a chance of going home to a cool house with the pollen washed away, and sleeping in a cool bed without spending the whole night sneezing and itching. Hurrah for storms.
