Empty Streets

It was Thursday afternoon and a huge rainstorm hit downtown Vancouver. This might sound like it should be common for a city perimetered by rainforest, but the rain here tends to be slow and long sometimes lasting weeks at a time. We don't get monsoons or heavy bursts too often. But this Thursday we had a big dump and the citizenry ran for cover. The streets were empty of cars and boots. Fortunately when I had to go out was the exact moment the rain cleared and the sky broke open into a marble of blue, white, and black. An exceptionally surreal ride.
