A second shot of rain

End of drought paddle

End of drought paddle

A second day of rain commenced at 1715.   The storm clouds gathered throughout the afternoon, temperature dropped and at the appointed hour the winds came and whipped through the trees with erratic fury.  The debris of fallen leaves flew between the legs of pedestrians and moved on up to head and face.  Fork lightning lit up the now blackened sky and the craved for rain came down in torrents.  But the whole drama was over in less than an hour.  Still a long way to go before the conditions left by drought are reversed.
