I knew the weather was changing

I knew the weather was changing

It has been hot and dry for a while, now.

Our spring dried three days ago, so we’re now bringing water down from the forest.

Today, you could see there was a sort of fuzziness to the hills in the distance. That always means we’re in for a damp patch. Just a short while ago I was in the garden with the dogs and the thunder started from the mountains. Rumble, rumble. All the dogs in the valley started to bark. I could feel the temperature dropping as I sat there, every breath of breeze colder than the last.

The first drops of rain meant it was time to get myself and the dogs back indoors.

So here we are, home and dry. I hope, but don’t expect, there will be enough rain to re-start the spring.
