It rained!

We had about 3 hours of rain yesterday evening, not just the occasional drops where you still could count them on the sidewalk. Might get more later in the day, sure hope so.

Lovely, the sound of rain on a summer evening and the aroma that goes with it. Something I don't even hope to get this time of the year - must wait until October or so, but it sure would be nice

Oh, how I would love some summer rain. But, I'm in pretty much the same situation as lilosophie, no rain expected until October.

Rain In Summer

How beautiful is the rain!
After the dust and heat,
In the broad and fiery street,
In the narrow lane,
How beautiful is the rain!
How it clatters along the roofs
Like the tramp of hoofs!
How it gushes and struggles out
From the throat of the overflowing spout!
Across the window-pane
It pours and pours;
And swift and wide,
With a muddy tide,
Like a river down the gutter roars
The rain, the welcome rain!

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882).
