The scent on of damp earth in the wind. We were smelling it for hours, heard the lightening and were celebrating the cool breeze, The clouds were rolling & building like huge gray pillows I poured rain! Every where but here.
In the first few hours this is the result of our first rain storm.
Mother Nature can be such a tease.
An hour or so later when we decided to eat outside on the patio it started drizzling, a nice soft steady rain which soaked in immediately. I’m not sure how much we got but it may have been an inch at most. Some areas around us received 3-6 inches. As nice as it sounds that much rain falling on dry soil just runs off and created a lot of damage.
As much as I wanted to dance in the rain I had my chocolate birthday cake inside & celebrated the gift of another year as well as the rain
Hope you had a wonderful day!
