Kansas City Tower

Kansas City Tower

The federal building in downtown Kansas City was my least favorite workplace of all time, except for its occasionally interesting vantages of the city. On this evening, however, there was no place on earth better than there, standing before an otherworldly bedazzlement of warm hues refracted through light rain, then reflected off multiple levels of convective clouds, and casting aglow the surface texture of the city itself. These towers formed over a pool of cool outflow left over from earlier thunderstorms. The many layers and shapes of clouds relayed the rays every which way and created a sunset more immersive to the senses than if one could bathe in the sky.
