The clouds were getting fuller, thicker, and darker; then BAM. It started raining. Not a gentle rain – it began to pour. Felt so good. The humidity finally broken and the cooling rain felt wonderful. Just as quickly as it started it was over. In another five minutes, another deluge – twice as hard and twice as long as the first. We were under the deck and in the shade, but got ...
