I looked out my window to discover that a storm was heading in from the west. The sky was purple-grey, meaning that white buildings popped from the background. I grabbed my gear, jumped on a southbound 146, and then made my way to the top of the John Hancock Tower. Surprisingly, the sky was hazy and washed out, as the sun's rays hit the moisture in the atmosphere. It looked nothing like it did on the ground.
Then this cloud appeared to the south, engulfing the AMOCO building, Trump Tower, and Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower). That cloud captured the power of the coming storm. Within 45 minutes, sheets of rain his the Hancock windows.
