There was something rather like rain here today— more than a mist but less than a drizzle, still it managed to turn the street shiny for an hour or so and make the soil smell damp. The clouds kept the morning comparatively cool, but by afternoon they began to dissipate and the air grew warm and muggy. There was not enough rain to turn any grass green, but I'm sure it was sufficient to get the dandelions started. I expect to see a fresh crop of them within a couple of days. I think I heard some thunder in the mountains, too, so the chance of a fire getting started has increased.
But one third of summer is over. Yay.
Now I have to take the wheelie bin out and then get something to eat. Not something out of the wheelie bin. Probably microwave burritos. It's still too hot to be cooking.
