Taormina Thunderstorm (Series)

By Owdman  
My wife and I sat in a bar on Corso Umberto in Taormina having a drink when the heavens opened and we had a thunderstorm with torrential rain for half an hour or so. We were perched under a slight awning and managed to more or less stay dry on the edge of the street. Others were not so lucky and the streets emptied with people huddled in shop doorways. The first photograph is to our left, the shop doorway was opposite the bar and the couple sat at the table to our right. Within ten minutes or so there were 'looky looky' men walking along under umbrellas selling ponchos and brollies!

Ha Ha, I have a similar set from Dubrovnik. Same thing happened to us.
Except we were under a cafe's umbrella. SmileSmile

Great capture of the occasion. My wife and I had a very similar experience in Taormina ourselves - the location must lend itself to flash storms like this - brings back great memories. Thank you for posting Grin
