Sunny Day Rain

Today, we had two bouts of rain.
The first happened smack dab in the middle of the sunshine.  It's been hazy for the last few days, and just enough to make it feel like it could rain at any moment, if not for the fact that the sky is relatively cloudless and it just doesn't ::feel:: right.  That's how it felt earlier.  We were driving home, squinting in the sun, and all of the sudden, the little drops of wetness started appearing on the windshield.  And then they started falling harder, until the whole windshield was polka-dotted and spotted.  What made it neat though, was the fact that it was making shadows on the dash because it was so sunny.  It was surreal almost.

The second episode was later this afternoon, and the air was more angry.
There was lots of wind - or apparently at least enough to "wind sweep" my plants.  (That always makes me fret a bit...)  And there was thunder and lightning, and rain.  It was quite the little storm!

But at least it rained!!  :)  Yay!
We'll check the damage in the morning, but I'm sure they will be happy to have the nourishment, even if they are sweeping the deck.
