This time last week I was at my mother’s house in Wales. It rained. I was there for seven days and it rained (at least a sprinkle) for five of them. On the Tuesday night, it poured, and I was sleeping in an upstairs room that is partly under a flat roof and I could hear the rain delightfully.
I was happy to see lightning across the sea when I looked out the window this morning at about 4:30. I spent some time attempting to photograph it – my digital is not up to the task so we will see when I get the film back whether I had succeeded. Accuweather and NOAA had been promising the possibility of rain and this morning there was a brief shower. I regret finishing the task I was on before going out to dance in it, because it only rained for about three minutes, and I was too late.
This evening, there is a continued promise of rain – but as we are so far from any hills, it’s really just vague maybe. I did step outside once I saw the sky colors – now this is an interesting formation. Looks like the beginnings of an eyewall…. we don’t get those around here. I hope. But it will likely be the precursor to a painting. At least if the rain stays away we will have a meteor shower instead tonight.
