About the rain

It was about a year ago that we had the devastating rainstorms in Colorado and maybe it was seeing on TV and reading about the deluges in Arizona and Nevada that re-triggered memories of last year’s floods when I was awakened in the middle of the night by the sound of rain falling once again.

But, this time it was a far more gentle rain and after I fell back asleep I didn’t have a nightmare about either a deluge or a flood, but instead dreamt about splashing in puddles as a kid.    A gentle rain falling in the middle of the night can trigger both good memories and the hope for a rainbow – like the one above that greeted us from our deck.

And I saw two kids on their way to school splashing happily in the puddles as they walked by.
