It’s been raining A LOT in Boulder, Colorado recently. Being an East Coast girl, I love it. It’s not the same critical mass of sticky humidity I grew up with back home. It’s hard and fast and yields a heady evaporate of hot sand and sage. The storms are either 15 minute intervals that leave Boulder flooded and blinking, or longer, more epic dowsings. Either way, by the time the lightning hits Kansas, everything in Boulder is washed clean – the roads, the plants, even the sunshine seems crisper. Here’s a collection of photos from yesterday’s afternoon storm.
