We have been having afternoon/evening/nighttime showers.
They are random and quick.
Building up; crashing and booming with lightning and thunder
It’s amazing and marvelous all at once.
Friday night in our town, they had an outstanding experience of an inch of rain in 30 minutes.
Where we live we got lovely, just right, rain. The air clean and refreshed. The air sparkling.
