Three things for Clare. We’ve had a few days of thunderstorms here recently, the first measurable precipitation in 97 days. And it drops the temperature down from 43 (108f) to 30 (85f).
1. The sloooshy sound of car tires driving by on wet pavement. (hey, it’s the desert, we don’t get rain much here)
2. Sitting under our metal patio roof having a cup of coffee, reading the paper and listening to the sound of raindrops plunking overhead.
3. Standing in the yard and watching lightning off in the distance, counting the seconds until the thunder rolls by. Big brave Max dives shivering under the pillows at the noise.
