Either Mother Nature was having one of her nice moments, or something else was at play.
But as Joe Zuniga drove southbound on I-75 yesterday, he literally had to hang up the phone and snap a picture.
What he saw completely floored him. In fact, the only thing he concluded was that something spiritual was happening.
"I was actually on the phone with my sister. It was her birthday," he told FOX 13. "I told her I had to call her back. I had to take a picture."
It was as if the interstate parted a sea of rain, leaving the open road for Florida drivers. Zuniga couldn't believe it.
He said he was passing by the Brandon Westfield Mall area around 5:30. Other people have posted similar pictures on social media.
His post to Instagram and Facebook alone was already getting a lot of traction.
Zuniga, a recording artist, is from Miami but lives in Tampa.
