It’s about 1500, or military-speak for 3 pm. The sky darkens in anger and frustration after holding in another long, hot and muggy summer afternoon. I look west to the mountains and see the tall dark clouds building like giant monoliths to the gods above. The air becomes cool and the Colorado winds pick up, clearing away the heat of the day, making the earth sigh with relief, breaking the subtle and yet broad tension that I felt in the air throughout the day. I revel in the exotic patterns and swirls that the wind creates in the clouds, only broken by brilliant flashes of lightning and rolling sounds of thunder that soon follow. I take a deep breath and savor the fresh taste of air that only a storm can create as the rain washes the air clean of all its scents, and relieves my body of the tension of the day. I realize the insignificance of daily qualms when compared with the furious battles reenacted by Mother Nature. Then, from out of the blue, “ATTENTION IN THE AREA, ATTENTION IN THE AREA, DUE TO LIGHTNING IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA, ALL PERSONNEL ARE TO REMAIN CLEAR OF THE TERAZZO AREA…” “****,” I think to myself, “I think the Thunderstorms are one of the few things I really enjoy in Colorado.”
