At least that's what it felt like. First the clouds loomed in great long waves, then the wind gave my car a shove, the sky went dark and gusts of rain shattered against the windscreen. At times the rain battered down so furiously that I couldn't see the road; with an occasional Crack! of a hailstone joining the fun.
What could I do with my evening once safely home? Watch The Day After Tomorrow of course! The storm raging outside created the perfect backdrop to the movie. I don't like watching it in the winter because it convinces me that I'm colder than I am and I certainly don't need tempting to turn up the heat!
