Big clue first thing this morning... anytime you see those little cloud wispy things under the big dark cloud, it's a sign.
But the storm didn't come in the morning, though of course the heavy air and the headache did.
The sun even came out for a while this afternoon, and I thought maybe it would clear up!
But then the clouds came and it started to get overcast, still no rain.
Lightening flashed. Thunder boomed. (The dog cowered, whimpered and lay on my feet, if it would have been possible she would have climbed into my lap.) That went on for about an hour and a half!
All of a sudden the wind whipped up a glorious gustiness and blew everything every which way in the yard. I was chasing after chair cushions and hats left on the terrace.
I couldn't help but laugh out loud as I was buffeted around whilst scavenging after things the wind decided to play with... the dog regarded me through the screen door with worried eyes. The cats dashed past me towards the house knowing that any second the sky would open up!
Fresh cool rain, fresh earth smell.
It came down solidly for about 2 hours.
Then I took the dog out in the sprinkles for a little walk-about. She was pleased. She LIKES rain.
She just doesn't like thunder.
For now, it's still raining a little bit, but it's that sweet rain that makes the hush-hush sound as it falls on the bushes outside the window where I'm sitting.
My headache is finally fading - just as it's time to go to bed. Well, I suppose I'll sleep well tonight- as will the dog if the thunder stays away!
Yes. I can't believe I wrote a post about the weather.
