(alternate title: when it rains, it pours)
I wasn’t surprised that we couldn’t make it through the first week of April without a bit of rain. I was surprised, however, at the downpour that greeted me this morning when I pulled the curtains open! I had heard the rain, as well as a bit of thunder late last night, but the amount of rain that lingered this morning was incredible.
As I drove today, the roads were beginning to flood, the rain was falling sideways in the wind, visibility was minimal at best. There were moments where the rain calmed enough for me to see that hyacinths are blooming.
I love Spring rain, but I can certainly do without this harsh, cold rain!
