Today the whole Public Library was shaken to the bones as lightning and rain hit the city. Everybody ran toward the shed as the rain got heavier. A momentary rush swept the whole premise. The volunteer was rushed to save all the posters form getting wet in the rain. In the end, everything went back to normal as rain decided not to spoil the whole day of the festival.
