The weather forecast was for rain and and dark skies

It hardly ever rains in Phoenix.

When it does, the sky gets dark and the rain is heavy.

Yesterday the weather forecast was for rain and dark skies. I had to work all day and I was soaked by the end of my shift. I left the house around 7:30 in the morning and the dark clouds were just starting to roll in. By 9:00 a.m., it was thundering, lightning, and pouring down rain. The storm was easily one of the fiercest winter storms that I have seen in Phoenix in a very long time and I have been living here since I was a kid. My first job on the schedule that morning was a commercial HVAC repair. Traffic was heavy on the interstate, but I didn’t have to travel very far. The commercial HVAC repair in Phoenix only took about 3 hours to complete. I was hoping to grab some lunch at a nearby restaurant, but the drive-thru line was backed up into the street. Nobody wanted to get out of their car in the rain. Instead of going to that particular restaurant, I decided to go to a food truck down the street. There was still a line at the food truck, but it definitely wasn’t as long as the line going to the restaurant. After lunch I had another commercial HVAC repair in North Phoenix. This particular repair took a lot longer to complete and I was there all afternoon. It was getting dark by the time I was finished, but at least the rain had stopped.
