June in Denver is known for beautiful sunny mornings followed by late afternoon thunderstorms. When Alex was younger, we would go out on the sidewalk and float down a variety of sticks and plastic boats toward the canal by our house. He would run along with excitement and splash along as the rain came down.
As a teenager with a truck, a whole new idea came to his mind as I was filming one of the biggest storms I’ve seen in 25 years of living here. As you’ll see on the clip, a very impromptu adventure came to life as the rain came down. I now see a boat in our future!
