It finally rained after 55 straight days of dry weather. You tend to forget a few things about taking sunshine for granted:
- No matter how diligently you water your plants, they don't appreciate it as much as even a few drops of rain. (That's "Knucklehead" the potted pumpkin. Look at those big leaves reaching for the raindrops!)
- Not a good idea to use water soluble ink, even if you're sketching under the eaves on a dry patch of the sidewalk. Instant specks!
- A cat can forget that its secret nap lair leaks in the rain.
Our neighbor cat emerged from her secret nap lair, VERY disgruntled and soaking wet.
