The gray lingered, and the heat grew, and the sultry air was sprinkled with occasional fat raindrops. They darkened spots of pavement the size of a quarter, but within seconds would shrink to the size of a dime and then vanish. At last, the massed gray began to break, and hot sunshine poured down between white clouds and silver-lined gray which took on a reddish tinge. It was a sky both beautiful and ominous. Tonight, the heat lingers in the still air, though some few stars have appeared. It seems unlikely that there will be a thunderstorm. Too bad. I'm still waiting for that fortuitous bolt of lightning.
