WELL! Houston has finally gotten some rain to quench our Texas sized thirst… and I’m pretty sure it’s been months since any kind of sizeable amount of H20 has graced our fare city.
The moment the sky turned gray I knew it would be the perfect time to do a bit of a preview of the Mitch Dobrowner show opening on June 4th!!

Ever since I was a kid I have always been fascinated with thunderstorms. I lived in Michigan for a couple of years and the natives would always get in such a tizzy whenever one came through—except for them, a thunderstorm was basically your run-of-the-mill Texas shower. Can you even call it a thunderstorm if there’s no thunder?

No… the kind I longed for in the Great Lakes State were the ones that I grew up with in East Texas (or behind the “pine curtain” as my friend Mallory so aptly puts it). You know, the ones where the sky turns ominously green and you can qualify it not by the inches of rain measured but by the number of large limbs that have fallen into your yard.
