After Rain

Today we finally got our rain after over two weeks of heat and dryness. We think maybe an inch came down before it let up in late afternoon. What a difference in the air, the ground, the grass, the trees, everything! I took a walk down the hill on the dirt road outside our house. Nary a horse fly attacked me. The air was cool and fresh and delicious. The view of the not-so-distant hill straight ahead of me was partially covered by fog and lifting clouds, but suggestive of a rain forest after rain. No, I didn’t take a picture of it but here’s one of a rain forest after rain on the far away island of Pulau Tioman off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia, sort of but not quite like my view of Little Fitch Hill in Bridgton, Maine.

    Rain stops there and start here … Well, maybe there is not enough water to rain both places simultanously ..

    Yah, that’s right, Valentin, there may not be enough water to go around — after it all gets boiled off from Global Warming. 😆 Am I kidding?
