For the first time in my life, I live in an apartment tower. Â I’ve lived in apartments before, of course, but never anywhere that had floors above the second or third floor. Â I’m on the thirteenth floor, with an amazing view of downtown Oklahoma City.
I have found a new kind of peace with this kind of view – when I make it home early enough that the sun is still up, it is amazing to watch the city get ready for the night time by turning on architectural illumination. Â The city has a soul, and you see it at night when it is shining.
Another amazing sight at this vantage is storms. Â Oh holy crap do I love storms and lightning – and Oklahoma City is right in that tornado-y, ass-kicking thunderstorms and hail alley of the country. Â A few weeks ago we had a string of days that had afternoon thunderstorms – and I had my camera on the tripod!
Check these out – I hope it is a good start to your morning!
and I kid you not, when this wave was over, the freaking sun popped out, and BOOM – DOUBLE RAINBOW.
