Some storms are unwelcome, but this one was not.
It was a beauty.
A wall of clouds came at us so fast I barely got the camera in time.
It was a matter of minutes before the winds gusted to 60 miles per hour.
The temperature dropped 20 degrees which was a blessing.
We don't usually see this many 100+ degree days in June.
Then the rain came. Glorious rain. It's been weeks since we saw rain.
The grass is dead, the lilacs and hydrangeas wilted.
Everything is desperate for rain.
We only got 1/4 inch, but there is another storm on the way.
I couldn't be happier about bad weather.
And happy to have something make me want to pick up the camera.
These are the first pictures I've taken in almost a month.
Two record dry spells broken in one weather front.
Hope your weather is good to you too.
Apologies to Billy and Lena, but Etta's version is my favorite.
