Though the clouds have been around all day, it is only in the last few minutes that I have heard the rumbling of distant thunder, and, going outside, I was struck by a few small raindrops falling through the hot air. I don't know if it will turn into a full-fledged thunderstorm, but in case it does, I'm shutting Sluggo down and carrying the flashlight with me. (Power failures are almost inevitable here when a big storm arrives.) Maybe I'll get wet, yet. I can only hope.
Later: Stupid browser crashed and Sluggo had to nap before I could post this. It still isn't a big storm, but thunder continues in the distance, and a few raindrops continue to fall, and the air is filled with the smell of them toasting on the hot pavement. Nice, for a change.
