Bringing Forth the Storm

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Living in North Central Texas, you learn that that thunderstorm can come fast, hard, and completely unexpected.  The sky can be perfectly clear, then on the horizon you start to see clouds gathering, and in minutes, you can be in the middle of rain, wind, thunder, lightning, hail, and occasionally a tornado.  Often these storms dissipate just as quickly as they began.   Perhaps there are people among us who can call the storms, either subconsciously or consciously, to alleviate drought or for revenge against groups or individuals.  Inspired after getting caught in a 3 minute down-pour.  I didn’t see it coming and almost didn’t realize when it ended.  Afterwards I saw a woman standing in one of the surrounding fields, completely drenched, and smiling.  One never knows, maybe she called for the storm…Photoshop, my tablet, and far too many hours.  (I lost my first version when my computer shut down unexpectedly.  The moral: save, save, save, and when in doubt, hit the save button.)
