That's one of my favorite sayings. And it was more than accurate this afternoon, when the hot summer sky darkened and wind turned violent in southern New England. We watched from inside the office while trees whipped wildly and rain blew against the windows. Luckily, our power only flickered on and off a few times.
While we sat snug and safe at our desks, a tractor trailer was flipped on the interstate and a small plane tipped at a nearby airport. Five houses in the southern end of the city were demolished and several damaged severely. The mayor put a curfew into effect tonight, in the interest of safety.
Just as quickly as the weather came in, it moved on, leaving behind mess and destruction.
Then the sun came out.
