Thunder storms in Washington calm everyone down, and shut everyone up. They're a chance to let your hair down, and soak up hot wet air. They remind us that all the green leaves glow, and that this city, rinsed off, is really pretty.
La lluvia es un abrazo morado que nos toca sin dejar chupete, y deja todo limpio, renewed, and re-flushed.
Rain is a way to count the time here in Washington. It comes like clockwork, these unexpected down-pours. Rain is for making the muck go away; and it always rains here in Washington.
