The rain made an appearance!

We got rain! This past Saturday, the temperature had dropped to the low 90s. It felt great outside. I sat on my balcony just enjoying the day. I sat and observed everyone out and about, driving by, playing in the pool....just enjoying the outdoors. All of the sudden the sky looked overcast and we got a sudden breeze. It felt nice.


Then I noticed some clouds moving in. Here are some photos I snapped with my camera phone just prior to a big electrical storm. It was interesting to watch the storm develop. The birds were frantically flying from one treetop to another. The lightening and thunder made the little bit of rain seem a lot bigger than it actually was. It was definitely needed. The rain came down soaking the trees, bushes and grass. I could have sworn I heard the grass let out a big...."ahhhhhhh" when the rain danced upon the ground.














It didn't last too long, but it was refreshing never-the-less.


Have a great day!

It tickles me that you describe the "low 90's" as "feeling great outside."

But congrats!

I TOTALLY grasp the concept of 90s as feeling great! We haven't really had the rain yet though. And the smoke is coming back... Blech....

Maybe our rains are beginning to head your way! Things are a bit cooler here too, why it was just mid 90s - regular cold snap, huh? ;)

I normally love rain, but it rained on me this weekend - while I was at an amusement park. Kind of cut my day short. :(
