|A little bit too much red, and moving a bit too fast,|
but it's certainly a welcome sight!
Fortunately, the promise in that flash of light was borne out. The rain is moving quickly through, and is more the violent-downpour-that-causes-flash-flooding type than the gentle, all-day rain we really need, but we will take what we can get.
It is still pretty dark outside at 6 a.m.; the weatherpeople are rather optimistically saying this will continue for a while yet.
I've never been happier to get wet on the the way in to work.
