100 words: A storm

In a few short moments ominous dark clouds covered the city; they quickly crawled upon us and blotted out the sun. The colour of the sky turned from bright baby blue to a dark grey.

The temperature dropped rapidly and the air turned from hot to cold in a matter of minutes.

It slowly started to rain; at first just a few cold drops fell from the sky but it soon started pouring and a few short heartbeats later the land was soaked.

The storm moved on as quickly as it came; perhaps to another city in need of refreshment.

  1. I love those sudden storms. Almost as much as I love the breaking sunshine when they leave.

    1. Same here; there is always some kind of a relief after a proper summer storm.

  2. A quick scene that is as cool and refreshing as its subject.

  3. A beautifully painted story. I love a storm after really hot - close weather. Do you use the term 'close' there? You know when its been hot for days and there's no air and no wind!

    1. Thanks Dicky, I'm glad you liked it. No, we don't use that term, at least I've never heard it.

  4. Such beautiful imagery!

    I always go out and look for a rainbow after a sudden storm in the summer.
