Just took a few minutes to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and watch the day come to an end. We've had gray clouds off and on all day, but no rain. But as I sat there, splash, splash, large drops began falling and I was forced to take cover on the covered patio. A warmish evening cooled down quickly in that brief rain that offered a great deal more in thunder and lightning than in actual water. No pictures tonight. Just a happy feeling.
Incidentally, I learned while watching the news that the colorful sunsets we are enjoying are thanks to a volcano that erupted recently in Russia. It has sent a plume literally around the world, and we are in its path, providing us with photo-worthy displays every evening.
