Thunder is rumbling outside my office window. That is an unusual sound in the middle of the afternoon, in August, in Fort Worth. Rain drops are sprinkling the window ledge. We are having a wonderful break from the heat of August. After reaching 109 just a few days ago, 90 feels cool, and anything lower feels chilly.

Last night we sat in front of Starbucks with Mike and Jill, watching multiple thunderstorms roll in. Lightening sparked across the sky repeatedly. The temperature began to drop. We could smell the sharp ozone smell of coming rain. Then the showers fell and we received a wonderful rain. It was more entertaining than television.
