This photo, taken this morning, shows clouds coming in off the ocean in the East, giving us hope that we might get a little rain today.
We had the same hope yesterday. At around 2:00 PM, I noticed clouds gathering, heading toward us. There was a feeling of rain in the air. After a two hour wait, rain finally arrived yesterday afternoon. Sadly it was barely a sprinkle that didn't last more than 20 or thirty minutes. A thirty minute rain would have been fine, if it had rained harder. A light sprinkle would have been OK too, if it had lasted for 2 or 3 hours.
Normally, after April's dry spell, we can expect the rains to return in May. So far, this month, we haven't been so lucky.
