Morning....

..... I rolled out of bed this morning and stumbled through to make coffee just as the sun began breaking through the clouds.... an odd morning, really..... the jungle that surrounds three sides of The Compound here seems so much darker and heavier after a night of rain and thunder....

..... wandering through to the living room, I pulled back the curtains and stood there for a moment looking out at the wet lawn..... my goodness...... I went to bed last night just as the storm started its approach.... lightning flickering off in the distance to the north, the promise of rain, booms of thunder causing the house's dishes to rattle...

..... and now?..... the county road at the end of my driveway is steaming in the first rays of the morning.... steam at 8:30 in the morning...... and by noon, my little patch of grass and trees will be as dry as Ezekiel's bones.....

.... the dust of the week was washed off of everything during the night.... and the morning dawns green, shiny, warm, and wet...

.... good god, I love living in The South.....

Well, I love living, and living in the South and I certainly appreciate the rain that you write of so eloquently, but the side effect of making the grass in the yard grow to the point of having to get out and hack it back is not my idea of a fun time.

Maybe I can get Obama to send me a little stimulus so I can hire a few of the "undocumented workers" that hang out at the local Home Depot to do it for me.

It has been quite, quite wonderful in the mornings here. I have yet to turn the air conditioning on and have been able to sleep with windows open. Do rather wish it could stay like this, heat up during the day and stay so much cooler at night.
