Hello, Clouds and dear Rain fans!

Please enjoy these precious memories from our Cloud USA Atlanta Super Cell Cloudburst March 15 weekend, our fourth community get-together. (Of course, there were some things that “happened in Vegas” so they have to STAY in Vegas, heheh. But you didn’t hear that from me…) 😉

It was raining in more ways than one for two days—weather-wise and Jung JiHoon-wise. Just check out my phone for confirmation. The forecast in the suburb of Duluth was… RAIN. LOL!

Cloud USA staff writer Michele made the trek down from Illinois, to our delight. Thanks so much to all of you who came to celebrate the wonderful talent that is 비, from the locals here in the ATL to those far away across Georgia and the U.S. (Tennessee, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, New York, Maryland, Illinois, Iowa, Alabama, etc.). Your presence warmed our hearts, and we hope to see you again not only at the upcoming Cloudburst in the fall, but at a future Rain concert here on our home turf one day. ♥

Postscript: I waited over a week before I began collecting images, because I figured that by that time all concerned would have reconciled what pictures they wanted to share and the ones they didn’t, hence what I saw would be okay with proper credits. If I’ve overstepped, please send me an email. Personally, though, I hope no one does. The pictures are lovely and I adore every one of them.

Thanks for sharing, dear friends! ^@@^

First night. U.S. Clouds united in our hotel hospitality suite after a good meal—where most of the fun and all the magic happened. (Image credit: Cyndi Lacefield @Facebook)


First night. Celebrating cloudhood and Rain at Myung Ga Won (명가원) Restaurant at suppertime, with pop quizzes, fan accounts, Rain door prizes, Mardi Gras beads, and good Korean food. (Images source: Pat Candlestick @FB / Jessica Lockridge Smith @FB)



All 8th Clouds should remember this T-shirt Gee was wearing! It’s the cute shirt that Rain designed for us for our 8th Cloud membership term while he was filming R2B: Return to Base! Aw. What a guy. ♥ (Image source: Cyndi Lacefield @Facebook / as tagged @weibo)



Cyndi and me. Gorgeous smile! Victory sign! Duckie face! 🙂 (Image source: Jessica Lockridge Smith @Facebook)


First night. Dear Maria delivered a wonderful surprise for me and Terri—our very own Rain “LA Song” miniature dolls from Japan. Requested and shipped to her by our Naoko, the dolls were made by Uchana and the outfits were made by Aoi, both Japanese Clouds.

Bless you four sweet angels! You really made our day.^^ (Image source: Maria Cammarota)

Second day. Clouds went shopping together at the huge neighborhood 아씨 (Assi) Super Mart. The sign was in Korean, English, and Spanish. Talk about diversity. 🙂 Everything you could possibly imagine is in this store. I bought some Korean bath and body products in there that are out of this world awesome.

Second night. Watching Running Man in Australia and Rain videos on a big screen, thanks to my laptop, the hotel’s projection equipment, and electronics whiz Jacqlyn’s mad skills (that’s her in the denim jacket). Thanks, Jacqlyn! S-w-e-e-t! (Images credit: cloudusa @Instagram / dynasticstephe @Instagram)



First night. Clouds and Rain go together like ham and cheese. Peanut butter and jelly. Soju and beer! 😀 (Images courtesy of Julia Romero Castro / Jessica Lockridge Smith)

  1. Enjoyed! Hope to meet up with you all next time!!!


  2. Very nice! Looks like a great time was had by all. Also, looks like everyone left with some awesome parting gifts as well. What happens in “Vegas” stays in Vegas? Well I can truly say…..that’s a given….better yet, it’s a requirement for any Cloud gathering. *SMILES*…………


  3. Beautiful pictures, beautiful clouds, excellent company, wonderful food, and of course our handsome Joonie to make our memories unforgettable and special. Hope to see you again in fall cloudburst and meet new clouds!!!!! Thanks for everything Stephe and Terri. Such a pleasure to finally meet you in person.
    Yelika aka Lluviakoreana aka yely 😉


  4. It looks like everyone was having a great time! It is a wonderful and exciting moment when a group of people with one great thing in common can come together and celebrate! I hope that Rain recognizes how he has inspired us at Cloud USA to move outside our comfort zones and enjoy life beyond our regular “normal”…..


  5. Awesome cover Stephe…I really enjoyed it. 🙂


    • Thanks, Lee. It was good to see you again. Really had a blast… wasn’t ready for it to end!

      Stephe ^@@^


      • You are so welcome. It was awesome you and Terri and all my lovly cloud sis…i hated for it to end to. 🙂

        Ok sumtimes i can b a lil S.L.O.W at gettin info but are havin one in the fall…..????


        • Seeing as the one we had before this in New Orleans was last fall, and this one was in the spring, I think that’s a good pattern to follow for the moment… however, it isn’t wtitten in stone. We can have one anytime, really, if the situation calls for it or folks just want to do it. I also thought that fall would give us all time to save $ for it, especially the clouds who came from out of state…

  6. Thanks for posting. I had the most wonderful time at the Cloudburst. How fortunate to meet Clouds from several areas of the US. I was especially happy to finally meet Terri and Stephe, two very lovely ladies. Seeing the Washington DC fans again brought back some fond memories. Clouds are special people and I was lucky to be part of this weekend. I’m looking forward to the next get together in the fall…..I’m there!!!!!
