It’s funny how a thing like drought can occur. Back in April, after a short burst of very warm, dry weather, we got two, three weeks of frequent rain such that I wasn’t able to cut the grass until it was almost too high for the mower. By June we’re watching films and seeing pictures of wildfires across the country, and here in July, it suddenly occurs to me that we haven’t seen a decent rain in my little corner of the world in about a month. Yesterday morning I awoke to find we had a brief rain that cooled things off very nicely, and in the afternoon, while I was at Writer’s Circle, we had a brief, heavy rain that left a rainbow like the one on Bonnee Crawford’s blog header.
I’m not a rain guy, normally, but we could use a little more (it’s supposed to get hot again today). And you can never go wrong with the Beatles, and this song just always sounded so interesting.
