Yesterday we finally got that promised rain. Over a quarter of an inch, but not one puddle. It was just too dry.
We could see it coming.
There were a pair of red-tailed hawks that kept circling, even as the thunder grumbled. They were hardly specks against the threatening clouds, but they seemed to be enjoying the thermals.
I was about to blog when that thunder started, and I hastily shut down the computer. We listened to the rain for a long time, but I went back out for the rainbow. It wasn’t much, at our house; only a part of the full arc.
The storm wall behind it was spectacular, though.
Today the storm is past, but we have some great clouds. And those hawks were still circling.
Tonight is Sarah’s graduation at Bakersfield College. It’s at 7, outdoors, and there’s a possibility of thunderstorms. We’ll hope for the best . . .
