Summer is here

According to the calender, today is the official beginning of summer!

At Houston we have been having summer-like weather for the past 3 months! Evening thunderstorms are as common as 95% humidity and the mercury hitting 95 here...

Last evening it was one of those famed storms, the black clouds rolled in around 3pm and by 4 it was pouring, heavy lighting and thunder. Watching the rains is something I have fallen in love with. Getting off work, there were people huddling in the lobby waiting for the storm to pass, she was the lone stranger getting stares as she pushed the door open and stepped out into the partly shaded footpath.

The first summer drizzle on her upturned face, the warmth of the summer rain, the smell of nature in the air..... and as the rains clear up, the dripping leaves laden with moisture, the small puddles on the road, the clear skies....

Summer, how can you not fall in love with it, despite its sticky humidity.... the cottons, the mangoes, the watermelons, the ice creams and the rains....

Summer is here! Yippie! And we are heading home just like those good ole days when we visited relatives during the summer break! We are counting down days... less than a fortnight now...

Enjoy your summer!
