shooting stars and storms

Perseid meteor shower is happening right now, but tomorrow night and the next is when it is peaking.

Tomorrow evening a friend of mine and I are going to go drive out of the city and maybe even pitch a tent in a field somewhere so we can fall asleep as soon as we are too tired to watch any more chunks of debris ignite and vaporize as they blast through Earth's atmosphere.

We had some terrific storms come through town today. I like so much that people in my office are the sort who are all happy to go to the window and watch the lightning, talk appreciatively about how loud the thunder is, and notice the rain running in rivers down the gutters. I have worked in unspeakably sad offices where people only ever could talk about what they saw on Seinfeld the night before, and if a storm came through the only thought that would come to mind would maybe be to click Save in case of a power outage.
