First summer rains

Last night we had the first major rains of the summer and it was really pleasant. It has cooled down enough to allow me to turn off the AC and sleep with my bedroom windows open, and last night, I was lulled to sleep by the sounds of the rain. The rain got steadily heavier through the night until this morning, just before I got up, it was a torrential downpour, accompanied by lightning (but, strangely, no thunder).

With a full month of summer remaining, I found that I missed the rain, and the cool air that accompanied it. I have another day or so to enjoy it. It’s supposed to get back up into the 90s later in the week.
