Today, I am thankful for entertaining weather.
The sudden, early evening deluge will probably ruin tomorrow's rock climbing adventure. I lament the disruption of our plans as we witness the slow-moving storm's power from Tom's hospital room on the eleventh floor (we call it the penthouse).
The room's picture window faces west, offering a sweeping, panoramic view of Pikes Peak and Front Range, the perfect outdoor theater for summer's dramatic weather shifts. Tonight's main event includes fabulous lightening bolts, deafening thunder, ominous looking clouds and torrential rain.
I don't know what we'll do tomorrow to get our climbing fix. Right now, however, we are the lucky occupants of front row seats for one of the best shows in town.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
