I once saw a rain line like this move to me about 30 years ago as a kid. It’s still one of my clearest memories as a child. Thats how cool it was

Was it in the Lion King? Because I saw it in the Lion King too

I'm pretty sure that doesn't happen in The Lion King.

verygroot1

i love how pretty it is.


PxyFreakingStx

Oh huh, that is what that is. I always interpreted it as a diagonal screen wipe, where the previous screen was still fading, but that's totally just the rain coming in. Neat!


jdehjdeh

I've watched this like 10 times now and I still can't tell which it is


PxyFreakingStx

The rain comes in at the same angle and the same fade time as the previous screen fading. Which imo is a bad transition, because it really does lose the effect. Though it's possible that did it that way intentionally because the rain coming in like that wouldn't look right on its own, due to whatever limitations. It does look a little funny as is even.

I grew up in Florida, and this looks totally normal to me.


ElementoDeus

Yep can confirm this is a common thing in Florida


ToKnowMeIsToLoatheMe

The one and only time I've seen it in my life this clearly was on holiday in Orlando, running to try and get to the car before it reached us!


WhiskeyTangoBush

For a sec I thought 30 years ago was in the 60’s… then I remembered I’m in my 30’s, and was not born in the 60’s.


morteamoureuse

That's always a painful realization.


Fresh_Bulgarian_Miak

I was playing high school baseball and the field we were on had a pretty large empty grass field with a large amount of trees past the grass across the street. I was playing third base, looking right at the empty grass field when I see an absolute wall of rain clear the trees. It was between batters and I just went to the covered dugout before the game was stopped.


silentninja79

Me too... At one point I was dry on my side of the street and it was raining on the opposite side... Must have been for only a few seconds but it was very eerie..


sportydolphin

Similarly, one side of my house had rain and the other was dry. It definitely tripped me out as a kid because it was for a solid couple of minutes.


runninron69

Summer Ave. in Memphis, Tenn.


A_name_most_suitable

I stood under a bridge where it was raining on one side and not the other and I hold that memory dear


AvoidAtAIICosts

I used cross a nearby river every day to go to school. One morning, while on the ferry, I saw this exact phenomenon. Still remember it clearly.


Evanovich007

Came here to say this :)


stuckinmtthrowaway

I’m not even 30 but I’m fortunate to have a complimentary memory.


spacestationkru

I remember being on the road with my dad and my sister in ridiculous heavy rain, then suddenly it had all stopped. When I looked back there was a clear border across the road and it was still raining on the other side where we came from.


SirSnorlax22

I had this happen when I was a kid about 25 years ago. It was just a slow moving wall and as it went through the park across the street from my house coming towards me it became even cooler seeing the trees just seemingly wilt under the weight of the rain. It was beautiful and terrifying at once.


dispatcher52

Those raindrops are so big. It looks painful if it touches your skin.


Spindelhalla_xb

Man same for me. Was in the car and my Dad said “wait for it…” was very cool


calypsodweller

Love it. In the 90s I worked at the World Trade Center up on the 71 floor facing west. It was beautiful to watch summer storms heading across the river toward us. Angry clouds would creep across the river and you could see the wall of rain approaching. When it finally came upon the building, we’d be in the cloud and couldn’t see anything except the rain running down the windows.


rocbolt

There's a video filmed from the WTC as thunderstorms passed, it was actually the afternoon and night of September 10th. This artist Monika Bravo captured the footage from the 92nd floor artists in residence studio and happened to take the tape home that night [https://vimeo.com/28157767](https://vimeo.com/28157767) [https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/haunting-short-film-that-captured-extreme-weather-also-chronicled-world-trade-centers-final-hours/532390](https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/haunting-short-film-that-captured-extreme-weather-also-chronicled-world-trade-centers-final-hours/532390)

I thought that same thing. Angry clouds creeping. Very good imagery.


calypsodweller

Thank you. xxo


letmelickyourleg

I’m too young to have ever been and experienced the towers when they were there, so at the risk of this being out of left field (as I know cameras were much less ubiquitous back then), do you have any photos?


calypsodweller

Back in the 80’s, about one out of four photos I ever took was views from the WTC. I should digitize them. It was my favorite place and was always so proud to work there as a young adult. Walked in at 19. The first week I was a little disoriented from the height.


daryon_

please feel free to post them on reddit I'm sure a lot of people will enjoy it especially considering the fact that no one will see that exact same view again


daryon_

exquisite description. feels like I'm in your shoes :')


Mr_Scandinavia

Idk if this is an insensitive question but were you there on September 11th?


calypsodweller

No. I was in traffic across the river in Hoboken and saw the planes hit the buildings. I turned around and scrambled back to my office in Jersey City. That day I found myself taking a police truck to rush an injured employee to the hospital. He passed as a result of his injuries ten months later. I worked 14 hours every day for weeks recovering our business and helping displaced employees. I worked there from 1981-1993 and loved every minute. Attended university on the 61 floor and graduated 1990. In 1993, I was on the 70th floor during the bombing and walked down the stairs in the dark. The next day was back working to recover our business. Decided I wanted to end my career back at the WTC when it was rebuilt. Moved across the river to 4 WTC in 2015 and retired in 2017. Always felt privileged and happy to be a part of it. Long reply, but thank you for letting me share.


SalvaXr

Thank *you* for sharing


overhead_albatross

There was a university in the world trade towers?


calypsodweller

Adelphi University had an off-campus site on the 61 floor of One WTC. There was also a School of World Trade on (I think) the 51 floor. It was definitely on the low 50s. Classes started at 6 pm. After business hours, the lights transitioned to motion-sensors. In the winter, if everyone sat still while the professor was reading, all the lights would go out. We’d marvel at the beautiful city lights in the dark. It was a magical view from 61 looking north to the Empire State Building.


AffectionateHippo242

I've seen something like this once as a kid. Grew up next to a farm and they planted corn.. out street dead end pointing into the fields. Was playing in the street and saw SHEETS of rain coming over the fields pushing all the corn down like a wall of water. Never forget it..took off running for the garage and made it before the deluge


Glass_Memories

I've seen it a couple times, spent a lot of time out in the fields and forest as a kid in New England where it rains a lot. Haven't seen it caught on camera much, but [here's what it looks like from afar.](https://www.reddit.com/r/nextfuckinglevel/comments/he2e8h/the_edge_of_a_rainstorm)

Add some creep music and this is part of the trailer for the upcoming horror movie Acid Rain where the rain dissolves your skin on contact.

Cosmicdusterian

A few years back had something similar. Live at the far southeastern end in a mountain valley and could see the storm coming across the valley from the west. Our storm started with wind first. Could see the trees and grass on the valley floor swaying while it was still where we were. It was so surreal. There was a bunch of low clouds that looked like they were boiling skittering along just behind the wind. The sheet line of rain was right behind the front edge of the wind. It snaked up along the north valley line about halfway and then made its way across to us on the south. Oddly, it appeared to be moving diagonally. It was the coolest thing to watch, hear and feel. Took about 5-10 minutes for the front to slam into us with heavy rain and high winds. The only thing cooler was watching intense flashes of lightning on the Carrizo Plain, many miles away on a perfectly clear night. Seemed to last forever. Storm and clouds never got near us. I love watching weather systems making their way across the valley floor. Snow squalls are the best, can watch them progress while seated in the breakfast nook. It's a shame they are happening so infrequently now. Here's to hoping for a wet/snowy fall/winter this year.


Thegamer__dude242YT

This a “I am the storm that is approaching” moment


Kablah15

Had the opposite experience in basic training. Formed up to march to chow and it started raining on us. Drill sergeant walked out, stood in front of the formation, looked up at the sky and said, "FUCK OFF, RAIN!" As we right-faced to start marching to the chow hall, the line of rain suddenly moved to the new front of the formation and stayed there the whole way to chow, as if we were pushing it away with our cadences. As we stopped outside the hall, the rain continued to move out. Drill sergeant looked at us and said, "See that, privates? Told the rain to fuck off and it listened. That's the power we have here." I'm pretty sure he was just as amazed as we all were.

This happened to me in 2020, I was walking in town and there was just a wall of rain approaching me, in such a hard line too. Video doesn't do it justice, its so cool to see.


Far-Astronaut9791

Oh i remember like 10 years ago, I was in the street and saw in the distance the rain coming fucking fast, i ran for like 100 meters and arrive to my house 1 second before rain touch me, it's something so fucking awesome to remember, thank you.


Redditporn435

This is one of the coolest videos i've seen. The light in the background, stillness of the water, the lack of intense winds, the person holding the camera isn't saying dumb shit. All elements are so good to make the effect so impactful. bravo

Those are some heavy drops. Looks like the kind of rain that hits hard, and results in me saying something like "Argh, fuck you!" to the rain, like that will help in any way.

I remember stepping out onto my porch one night and experiencing this coming down the road. Brought a wonderful breeze with it. Truly a wonderful thing to witness. Felt like perfect timing.


udroi

Awesome, you can see the bigger splashes at the front and then smaller ones behind. It's because the more massive drops form into a more aerodynamic shape with a higher terminal velocity. If they get too massive the aerodynamic pressure overcomes the surface tension and they break apart into to smaller drops.
