in the weather today. About noon – while my laundry was still drying on the line – the winds started to pick up, dark clouds moved in and it got cooler. “Hallelujah”, I thought, “maybe we’ll actually get some rain.” No such luck. But at least the weather became a little more agreeable… temps in the 90’s versus 100’s. Then, about 6pm it came… rain! I think of going into my back yard, stripping naked and dancing in the rain, but instead I watched it from my bedroom window fall to the parched earth and get sucked in. The rain did not last very long, but I was most grateful for what we got.
