The weather forecasters have been saying that we would get some rain. Many days it looked like it would but not so much on our little patch of ground. We had cloudy skies and a maybe a sprinkle or two. You might even venture to call it rain. Then – last night – in the middle of the night, a thunderstorm arrived. Loud claps of thunder rattled us from our dreams. Flashes of lightning lit up the sky. And the rain.
The rain poured down.
In spite of all that terrific rattling, wind blowing and torrents of rain, nature surprised us this morning with a show of resiliency and art.
