While a resident at Vizcayne, I witnessed a bunch of cloud activity from my balcony. The sunsets were gorgeous, but storms came with a completely different mood. A different language to which I discerned drama and emotion. And when the sunlight came to play with the stormy clouds, this created a bizarre dimension of hustle and bustle in the sky.
Just as I returned home from work one evening, I approached my balcony and spotted precipitation and severe cloud cover approaching downtown Miami, about 25 miles west. Oh, yea! That is another awesome feature about living 30 stories up; you can see for miles, especially when the land is relatively flat with a visible horizon.
This storm was speaking to me! Well, it was not a storm yet, but I could tell it was going to become one. It started raining within 15 minutes and the sun disappeared behind the overcast. The rain was brutal and lasted for 60 minutes or so. The aftermath of this storm was strange, mostly in part because this all occurred during sunset hours. Sunlight began exposing itself through the crevices of the broken clouds.
Rays from the sun reacted beautifully with the moisture in the air and the partially cloudy sky. I thought it looked insane! Out in the west, Miami Int’l Airport appeared to be spotlighted by the sun, as if it were featured in the storm’s limelight.
