Pretty picture

A little bit too much red, and moving a bit too fast,
but it's certainly a welcome sight!
On the way back from my 3 a.m. bathroom break, my life flashed before my eyes. At least that's what I thought, before I remembered that thing called lightning. It's been so long since we've experienced it, I'd forgotten how bright it can be.

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.

Oh, I'm so envious. Adore rain. And totally get what you say about getting wet. :)
