...and then the rain came.

Last night on the way home, I spotted a big fire on the southwestern slopes of Green Mountain. The whole valley was filled with smoke. The news had it covered. It was not a big fire (only about three hundred acres) but it was smoky.

By the ten o'clock news, the fire was out and we had only the smoke to deal with. But then the rain came.

It was sprinkling earlier in the evening. Some time over the evening, about a quarter inch of rain fell into my rain gauge. The smoke smell was gone. They are predicting thunder storms this afternoon and more tomorrow. Yeah! My garden needs it!

Wherever you are today, I hope your day is a good one.
