Hot City

The wind changed directions – first it was like a constant stream of steam blowing in your face, and very quickly a steady push of much drier, much cooler air carried away some of the stickiness on my skin. The lightning and thunder was like a violent release of pent up anger for a while, setting off a few car alarms, and the eventual rain was more of a steady settling in to a much deserved relaxation.
