I was awakened this morning at 4:30 by the blinds slamming into the window frame. I got up and looked outside. Wild wind was howling through the neighborhood. And then the rain started. I closed the window and then I grabbed my pillow and headed downstairs. We usually had a fan running in our room, so if I wanted to hear the wind and rain, I had to head to the basement where the comfy leather couch is. I threw that window open. It was glorious. For a few seconds and then I passed out again, the rain and the wind just knocking me out.
I was tired this morning, but I'm excited for the return of the rain.
Not so much for the coming darkness that means I'm driving to and from work in the dark.
