Im getting ready to go to a football game, with severe thunderstorms in the forcast. Last game a thunderstorm popped up too, and first everyone cheered, then started screaming and running for cover. Sitting in the 1st row, all the rain ran down the stands, and collected in a lake where my feet were. Sitting for hours in wet sneakers and jeans is no fun.

The weather is perfect here. 27 deg cel during the day. Apparently there is a typhoon below us but it's not causing trouble here in Kyoto. Tomorrow morning we are off to the mountains about 7am. Can't wait.

No rain here yet, and that is great. I am doing a "Le Tour de Westbank" today. Tommorw's forcast is severe weather.

Rain is predicted for the Revolution match in Foxboro tonight. The home team can clinch a playoff spot and I don't want to miss being there, rain or not.
Go Revs.

Its not raining now. I'm trying to convince myself I wanna go for a ride (pitch black out right now). I'm not doing a good job of convincing.

There is lightning off in the distance now. I cannot wait for the storm to strike. A late September thunderstorm is a treat. The old tin roof on my house plays a melody incantation when it rains.
