I know, I know… I’m really, terribly sorry about the awful pun in the title. Unfortunately, it’s very apt.
This evening, not an hour ago, I arrived home from work early. I was determined to take advantage of the blue skies and bright light — despite the beginnings of a headcold — and even spotted a picture that I really wanted to take as I walked home. Unfortunately, about a minute after I stepped back outside, camera in hand, it started raining, and then started hailstoning. Is hailstoning even the correct word?
Anyway, I managed to get a few quick, boring snaps of the various flowers and bushes outside my apartment building before I had to retreat. And naturally, as I sit here typing this post, the rain has gone. Vehemently so — it’s currently evaporating in twists of steam from the balcony outside my window.
