Rain, let's hear it for more rain!

For a moment, let's compliment the weather here: it's actually chilly today! The clouds are rolling in – I guess people were right when they said it doesn't get dramatically hot until June. Do you think it will rain today? I hope so!

Wait – is that thunder? Thunder! Yes – pouring rain, hear it comes, falling at a diagonal even, and then hail, and then more rain, and that wonderful moist desert smell, like wet clay maybe, but oh, is the rain stopping already? More thunder – that's a good sign. But I don't hear the rain anymore. I'll go outside and see. Oh – I guess it's stopped already, just a tiny bit of drizzle lingering but still the clouds, wind, thunder, will there be more rain? Let's hope so.
