No, not a metaphor. We’re really supposed to have a thunderstorm today. High probability they say. It’ll go up to the 80s and 90s again first, and then it’ll crack open…I hope. I’ve not seen rain for so long I’ve forgotten what it is like. Please let’s have some rain. We’ve seen three inches here in the last year (about 12 short of what it should be), and boy do we need it… (Apparently it’s all over in Europe. There are floods, I hear.)
So I sit here, trying to calculate, while hoping for rain – and a real grand-piano-falling-down-the-stairs thunderstorm!
