I took this photo after work one evening in September of 2006. We are looking west at the south platform of the Riverside Illinois train station. A very heavy and torrential thunderstorm was approaching from the northwest. Soon the sky would turn dark gray, and the entire Chicagoland area would get a huge downpour with flooding conditions in some areas. There would be an abundant supply of thunder, lightning, heavy downpours, and severe thunderstorm warnings issued on TV by the National Weather Service that night. Ka-Booom!
