I was (relatively) snug and warm inside today. Thick sweater. Warm wrap. Fuzzy slippers. (Thermostat set at 65dF as is our wont. …)
And then the storm cleared and I took pictures …

Rain soon! (x’d fingers)
Update: Rain was fast and furious for a bit, but now the wind and the rain are barely there. x’d fingers for more wet.
