Storm a-coming

So they say. I can’t remember the last time it rained. Much as we need it, I hope it holds off until this afternoon—I’m not ready to give up this sky yet.

    Okay, I hope you can file this under geeky and charming as opposed to creepy and weird … iOS6 brought with it a new app into which one can load any number of clocks onto a world map, and along with telling time for that city, it’ll give the temperature and weather conditions. Well, I’ve got various locations on there, including where friends live and a number of spots my 10yo chose. We looked at it just now and saw that you all are having rain and I exclaimed, “Lissa’s got rain right now! Isn’t that lovely?!”

    LOL, I *love* that! 🙂 Alas for our dry dry county (and my rain-deprived children who were hoping to dance in it), all we’ve had so far today is about thirty seconds of sprinkles. Right now the front yard is sunny and the back yard is cloudy. I’m seeing a lot of San Diego blue in that sky…

    (As I write this, Rilla has just come to me with a dejected face and this report: “Only three clouds left, and they’re moving away.”)

    Last night, we were upstairs, and Heard Something. Tech Boy is always afraid something is falling apart in the house when we hear noises, so I said, “Trash day tomorrow; the neighbors are dragging the cans.”

    He said. “Oh. Late for that.” (It was 10 p.m.)
    “Yeah, well, the trucks come early.”

    A moment of silence.

    And then the neighbors apparently dragged their can, and four or five others for about a hundred and fifty feet. And we looked at each other and squealed, “Thunder!” And it poured. For a second or two. It was amazing.

    And yes, we’re total, utter ridiculous geeks, to be so excited by rain, but hey – it’s became an old friend in Scotland. And it’s easier to get excited about it with a car. Still, you’re right – it didn’t last. Forecast next week is back up into the eighties.
