Lush Rain

I can't remember the last time it rained around here. The meteorologists tease us and say an inch or two of rain is coming. I'll believe it when I see it. Days and days of triple digits is making me loopy. I walk up the driveway to the house and the air smothers me. I walk out the door and the heat smacks you in the face. How did we ever live without A/C? We're so A/C whipped.

I remember playing tennis in this shit. I was much younger and could handle it. I'd take a cooler full of ice water and some towels and I was fine. It'd probably kill me now.

The rain is coming, driving to the bank and back, the banks of dark gray clouds moving in. It relaxes me just to know it will rain at 5:15pm....at least that's what weather.com says.
