It began Friday, just a few drops now and then, sometimes a quarter-inch shower or two.

But last night, the bottom dropped out. We’ve had real rain.

So, I learned a little about how to take photos in the dark and stayed out awhile just to enjoy the difference in everything.

The birds sing differently this morning. The clattering of the tree leaves sounds different. Every sound seems muffled by humidity.

The skies overhead are still gray and heavy with more to come.

Thanks be to God.
