Today's overcast brought sprinkles by early afternoon, and later some drizzle which has continued past nightfall. The rain is probably barely measurable, but it smells nice, and it has taken the pollen from the air. Despite the bit of water, the frogs are silent tonight. The loudest sound I hear is the slow drip of water in the drain pipe from the roof. Its tick... tick... tick is like a clock running down until time stops. If it stops before morning maybe I'll finally get enough sleep.
