Late July thunderstorms.

The clouds opened up today for about 10 minutes and rained.
I quickly egged the children on to run outside with umbrella's to enjoy it.
Then I ran inside to lay on my bed.
(there is nothing like laying in bed with a thunderstorm overhead.)
Then I got off my bed and opened every window in my room.
And then I jumped back in bed and listened.
Rain, wind, and children screaming in delight.
Then came the smell.
The smell of wet mountain grass and summer fading.
I was a very happy girl.
Until it ended.
