Tried to give my love of the salvation that music gives a '60s feel. I'm kinda proud of this poem because it's the first good poem that I've ever written (written 2016)

Jukebox Safe Haven

1
I walked into the diner
to escape from the southern heat
and to smell all of the sizzlin’ bacon
on the skillet
 
It was raining that day
The winds crashin’ and howlin’
Tryin’ to break down the diner they were
 
I put a quarter in the Jukebox
And listened to the bacon sizzle
While the jukebox rattled and shook
Tryin’ to find my song.
 
The Jukebox rumbled and sighed,
Then the lights died!
We sat in the dark, tremblin’
Until the Jukebox played the Jitterbug
And we escaped

    I am only confused with one thing. It says that you were trying to escape the southern heat but it also says it was raining. Is it raining and sunny?
