that familiar sound

On the bus this morning, early grey gloom crept through the windows. Everyone looked a little bedraggled, even though it hadn’t rained yet. Someone sneezed. The bus driver boomed, “Bless you,” through the microphone, and we all laughed. The skies lightened.

Outside, all afternoon, the skies threatened grey. And on the bus ride home, the streets relented and accepted the fat drops. I love that first patter on the skylights in my kitchen. This feels familiar, right somehow.

Today, the rain came back to town.

    Yeah, unlike previous sprinkles this month, this feels like the real thing – it’s got the sodden-leaf thing going on.

    Thank goodness for Seattle and it’s polite bus drivers (we won’t talk about the other bus drivers).
