I guess it's been 2 or 3 weeks since the last drop of rain... but with the unrelenting heat, it seemed like an eternity. What you can't see from these pictures is the acrid smell coming up from the steaming blacktop and parched ground as the water soaked in... the awesome gust of cool breeze that carried in the rain... the giddiness we all felt when we saw those first drops! I had to let the kids get a little wet, but we were getting ready to go out, so it wasn't a soaker this time.
Now to enjoy a few days' relief from the heat! Hope it's nice where you are!
