Sudden Change

Without transition, the rainy season has arrived in a big way. February and early March were wetter than usual, but most of March and almost all of April were breezy, dry and warm. Then on Saturday we had a real rain storm. It did not last long, but it was a lot different than the little spritzes we have gotten lately. Sunday we had another substantial rain (we recorded about 1.5 inches.) Today at about 11 AM we had returned from a hike with our friends Claudia and Bill. The rain began about 11:30 and has kept going for hours. It has rained buckets and barrels - it's impressive. On the plus side, I'm glad we won't have to keep watering some of the plants in the yard. On the not so plus side, now it begins - the season of mud, mildew and mold.
