Summer in New York City means not only ridiculous heat and humidity but also epic thunderstorms. There is always a build up to the storm. First, the sky turns gray and it looks like the apocalypse is coming. Then the wind picks up, hopefully you are not wearing a skirt and don’t even think about using an umbrella. Finally, the air changes and you can smell the rain coming.  I love these summer thunderstorms, it is fascinating to watch the city empty out. The streets are completely empty and there is an eerie silence.

Write about a thunderstorm that you or your character get caught in.
