that the June rains
just fall."

The first day of summer has arrived.  It was also take-the-three-kids-to-the-dentist-day.  Such a plethora of excitement!  After the appointment, we went to Target to pick up a few things for DQ who is going to the Ozarks for five days with her second cousin.  There was a thunderstorm while we were in the store, it cleared up after a bit and the sun shone again.  After supper, while I was sitting on the porch, we had a sun shower – a weather phenomenon I always find fascinating.

My dad called me at 8:22 to tell me that the sky was looking pretty spectacular this evening.  Yes it did…even with the pesky power lines in the way.  Thanks for the photo tip Dad!

Wow! That sky is incredible. We had sun showers too, followed by hail.
