After the rain
|Just after the rain stopped, June 25, 2013, 5:30pm|
Yep. It rained solidly for about 2 days. Not a hard rain, but a steady soaking. Something about a large Arctic low moving the jet-stream, and oceanic tropical moisture. It was a warm storm, just down to the 60s F.
Actually, it often does rain in June here, but not every year. It is more surprising this year because of the warm dry spring we had.
This picture is looking out over the top of the grocery store, between tall trees, from the bus bench across the street, about an hour after the rain stopped on Tuesday. There are houses all around, and under those trees too — but what a lovely view. And the clouds sitting on the tops of the hills.
Today, Wednesday, it was a lovely walk to campus. The air yesterday and today was very soft-feeling, with all the moisture, and warm.
By next Tuesday, the temperature is supposed to be back up to 101 degrees F.
I decided years ago that if it ever didn't look like this here, I wouldn't want to live here anymore.
