The Oncoming Storm   Leave a comment

The Weather Channel, we have heard, is calling this storm Titan.  At least for us, it’s not a Titan, but definitely a great storm.

It rained a little last night, and I hurried out to record the raindrops on the patio plants.

When I looked to the west, it was obvious that Mother Nature wasn’t through with us.

(Please ignore the dog answering a call of Nature.  Let’s pretend we don’t know who she is.)

As the clouds darkened, it was even more apparent that we were not through with this storm.

A few minutes later, the heavens opened.  It really poured.  For only the second time this season, we have actual puddles.  They’ll soak in quickly, though.  This was a good storm, but we need more like it for a real drought-buster.

For today, though, we’re happy!
