This morning I woke up to the welcomed sound of rain. I got up and looked out to confirm it was indeed raining. It was light enough to see, but the sun had not appeared over the horizon yet. So the wet season is upon us. I love the smell of a fresh rain as it stirs up the dust and eventually cleans the air. The rain only lasted about 10-15 minutes, so I laid back down to take in a few more minutes of sleep. Anyway after the rain stopped, the clouds apparently moved on and the sun came out. I missed the rainbow, but I am posting a few pics captured by a couple of Facebook friends.
The grey overcast of clouds has returned this afternoon, and it is very humid. But I look forward to more rain soon which brings more growth and new life to this area. We haven’t had rain since December. It reminds me of what Auburn, California looks like in the summer. so it will be nice to see the dry grass and some bare trees return to green.
