Over

There was more rain than expected today, but the sun came out a while ago, and though we didn't get a sun shower the warmth caused the water on the rooftops to vaporize and drift back toward the remaining clouds. The downspout was still trickling loudly for a while, too, and all the leaves were decked with drops of water glistening in the bright light. The vegetation's hoarded raindrops continued falling for quite a while, their drumming slowly diminished until now only an occasional drip is heard.

Now the remaining clouds are gleaming white wherever the sunlight hits them, but still dark and brooding on their shaded undersides. The amount of open sky is growing, and that is what will bring a very chilly night. I expect we'll be seeing some stars tonight, though they will be dimmed by the presence of a waxing gibbous moon which is very nearly full. I'll listen for frogs when I go out to see it. They undoubtedly enjoyed the rain. The feral cats will be glad it's over.
