|I adore the deep blue of the sky here|

Last Saturday I found myself caught in a torrential rain and hailstorm while attending the Cherry Blossom Festival in downtown DC. Picture thousands of people (mostly tourists) in a mass panic due to the pelting hail, running across the Mall to see shelter in the closest Smithsonian. Pretty amusing actually.
Then, as suddenly as the storm came, it ceased and sunlight shot between the clouds. Such a moody day that created an interesting backdrop - dark greys mixing with the luminescent pastels of the cherry blossoms.
The weather reminded me so of England, prompting such yearnings to return to that beloved country.
