Storm Front

Well, I'm back in Chicago after a quick trip to North Dakota for the big Anderson family reunion (more on that...and a bunch of other back-logged news...later), and as I ready myself to practice this morning I've been watching an amazing storm front roll in...

I went out to the lounge to take pictures of it through rain-streaked panes of glass, and as I looked out over the water, this menacing mothership of a cloud (its odd resemblance to an extraterrestrial airship enhanced by reflections of lights inside the lounge lining up temporarily with its leading edge) moved in with unnerving speed to blacken the sky and cast an impressive shadow over the lake. The wind is going crazy out there and I half expected to see a waterspout twisting and dancing somewhere out near the horizon (shivvvvverrrr!)
