There's nothing quite like waking up in the wee, dark hours of the morning with the feel of raindrops on your face and the smell of petrichor in the air. It's what happens when you sleep with the windows open, and Edoard comes along to break the drought! ...unlike Hurricane Dolly, who was just a lot of, literally, hot air...
I'm going to be sorry when I'm trying to stay awake after lunch, but I was soooo excited that, even though it was only 4:30am, I got up and went outside to reacquaint myself with real RAIN! I almost didn't recognize it after the weeks and weeks without.
It isn't going to last. The sun isn't even up yet, and already the rain is down to a trickle. But the cool-ness of the washed air remains, and after weeks of crackly crinkling underfoot like autumn leaves, I think the grass is going to be a lot happier today. I know I am!
