The dark clouds gathered and it looked like it might rain. Over the last 15 years we have become accustomed to it looking like it might rain but it doesn't. However during the last 6 months when dark clouds appear it has rained. And so it did today. Lovely rain to dampen the dry, parched land. So dry that not much sinks in to the ground. The soil has set up an anti soaking mechanism just like a dry sponge doesn't soak up water as good as a damp one. We had thunder and lightning, Elmo and Timmy weren't too happy about this weather. The rain was loud on our metal roof, a noise we haven't heard very often.
