Tomorrow there will be kind-of-a-big-deal game, otherwise known as the first ever 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship. However, it won’t take place at the location of today’s photo even though the Ducks will be playing. Instead, it will be at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas–home of the Dallas Cowboys.
This photo was a 10+ photo photomerge I took from the press box back in November of 2013. The rain you can see on the far left swept through the stadium during warmups a few minutes later, but it never rained again on this day (or during the game). Oregon prevailed over Utah.
A few hours passed before these clouds unleashed their fury, but they did later in the day. I took refuge here.
The view from El Pipila is always excellent, but when the sun is about to go down and two days of heavy storms have just concluded things can go from excellent to outstanding.
I learned this past week that weather.com is not to be trusted when it comes to weather in Guanajuato. The forecast just before I left the USA was for highs in the 80s, lows in the 60s, and a few sprinkles the entire 10 days I’m in Mexico. When I arrived the streets were flooding from extreme amounts of rain. The rain was incredible for my first two days here. The revised forecast is for highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Too bad I didn’t prepare for such temperatures.
Today’s photo comes from the end of the storms. Weather.com said we had a 100% chance of rain yesterday afternoon and evening, yet there was no rain and the skies were beautiful.
