We drove through three thunderstorms, hail, and blinding rain and had two baring down on us here even as we pointed the ourselves towards an opening in the clouds.Couldn’t have been happier to get home.Could be from any decade.
Saw this while walking my parents dog during a visit. I couldn’t deal with small town life anymore I don’t think, but it would be nice to be able to walk out of my apartment to a scene like this. Right now I don’t care to walk anywhere. Cement jungle in every direction.
