Pictured above is the calm before the long overdue sprinkling yesterday afternoon. Actually, the rain stayed for a good fifteen minutes, more or less; Enough so to provide our stressed out vegetation some relief.
My favorite moment during the rain was seeing all of my mom's neighbors standing on their porches, marveling at the anomalous event. Rain has a soothing effect on a person, but going outside to actually witness the rain has more to do with our sense of disbelief.
Saturday night we got a pretty good light show coming in from eastern Webb Co. The lightning forced the Nixon band to leave Krueger Field early. The football game went on. Hey, priorities are priorities.
