Fragrant Rain

Last evening, the temperature dropped a welcome 30º in a brief period of time, and it began to rain.  Of course, the power went out, too, so we opened windows and a door.

Mom:  I can smell the rain.  Doesn't it smell wonderful?

Son3:  Well, to be honest, for some reason it reminds me of a camel in a petting zoo.

Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord.  Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.  Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.  James 5:7, 8

We finally had a bit of rain last night too and it dropped a few degrees, but not enough (or long enough) to really make a difference. We're back to a heat index of over 100 again today.

Marie Anne, we were right back in the toaster oven the following day, yesterday, but today is supposed to top in the 80s, which is sounding pret-ty good by comparison. Ü
