I left the house at 5 AM this morning so that I could be down in Franklin before sunrise. I hit a massive wall of rain on the way down slowing me down to about 35mph. The rain stopped and cleared up. It appears as if I outran the front. When I got down there I saw this front and tried to take some pictures without getting the camera wet. I also got some good mammatus formations too. We really need the rain. I love the cool summer days with rain - it reminds me of when I was a kid in Tacoma. I like heavy rain and storms but I also love those days when it just rains all day. A long steady rain. I like it when it rains for a whole week at a time but I guess I am in the minority.
