I was away from home yesterday afternoon, dropping Younger Daughter off with friends for a week, when the rain that had been threatening finally hit. Older Daughter was trying to talk to me in the car and nearly had to shout to be heard over the torrential rain. I almost pulled off the highway until it passed, it was so heavy.
Too late to rescue the laundry off the line, of course. It's soaked.
Then the sun broke briefly and we were treated to the sight of a double rainbow. Ah, lovely.
