It's a sobering, humbling experience. We sat there, watching mother nature's mild display of her talents, knowing full well it was but a fraction of what she's capable of.
The sun has always been a bit hard on my eyes, I get headaches from brightness pretty easily. The clouds during a storm do a great job of blocking that. I also take comfort in the white noise of the rain hitting the ground, the roof and trees around me. The lack of mosquitoes or other pests is also a benefit.
These days, my bones are a little creakier, my tolerance for the raw weather is a little lower, but I can still appreciate it under the right circmstances...
Like, from inside a warm, dry car.
