This morning was a refreshing change. I’ve been in the habit of having a cup of coffee out on the porch in the mornings, but the heat these last several weeks has temporarily kept me inside — when the sun comes up over the distant mountains, it immediately gets too uncomfortable to stay outside.
But this morning was a little different. It rained. Not just the little sprinkle we normally get during the day, but a good hard rain. And with the bit of wind that accompanied it, it was coming down at a nice angle. The porch was covered in spray. The sun was still out, baking everything in sight, but with the mist blowing across the porch, it was quite comfortable to sit out there for the 15-20 minutes it lasted.
