Rainy and cold

California's historic drought notwithstanding, we experienced a sudden storm this afternoon, just when my evening commute started.

Big, quarter-sized drops of rain plopped down onto my windshield, and then a torrent, sheeting down the glass. Traffic was a nightmare. I was stopped at one intersection, trying to turn left, through a cycle of two lights before I gave up and changed directions.

Home now, it's a cold night. I gave Jack a quick walk and then came inside to batten down the hatches. 

How's spring treating you?

I'll swear it was never any colder all winter than it is today/right now.

And not to advertise (much) but I was out & about in it today & have posted a photo or ten.

We were at Zion National Park on the night that this post appeared (and the reason I am just now reading it). The weather there was just warm enough -- but still cool -- and a nice change from our still-chilly temperatures at home.
