It looked as if we were going to get a break this afternoon.  Storms
were predicted for the area.  About 4:15 it got pretty dark and began
to thunder.  Then within about five minutes it began to rain - heavy,
torrential rain, falling straight down.  I thought, oh boy, this will be
so good for us.  About that time I glanced out the window to the
north, and there was a towering cloud against a brilliant blue sky.
The rain fell for fully five minutes and by 4:30 the sun was out 
again and the sky was nearly clear.  I guess every little bit helps.
I won't need to carry water down to the garden this afternoon - just
the potted plants under the eaves and in the breezeway.  Oh well.
