The rain is coming!/Дождь идет!

This is very cool. We went to a store to get some groceries. Parked, came out of the car, and then I heard some noise as if it was raining. But it was not raining. So, as I saw just a hundred yards away from me, it was pouring down there and yet I was dry! I pulled out my phone, took a picture, and was just about to stay there and view how hard it was raining so close to me... In just three seconds I felt raindrops on my head, and it was a good thing I started running towards the store, otherwise I'd be drenched. The store was only about 50 yards away and I barely made it.

Вот это было ваще... Поехали в магазин, припарковались, вышли. Слышу, что-то шумит. Оборачиваюсь -- в ста метрах дождь поливает как из ведра. И я прям вижу как он поливает, а там где я стою -- нет. Не, где я стою там тучки и даже ветерка нет, а в ста метрах поливает. Я достал телефон, сфотографировал, думаю буду стоять и смотреть. Ага, сейчас. Через три секунды мне сверху постучали. Каплями дождя по голове. Я понял что надо бежать. Еле добежал, было от силы метров тридцать.
