It didn't last long, a mere thirty minutes, but ooh was it a welcomed sight.
If you listened carefully you could hear the trees and flowers, heaving a big sigh of relief, their roots and foliage drinking in every last drop of moisture.
The temperatures fell, and for the first time in several weeks we enjoyed a tolerable 81degrees.
How lovely is that !
After the dust and heat,
And swift and wide,
Like a river down the gutter roars
The rain, the welcome rain!
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
