Addie may be young but she’s no fool.   Rain is a pretty big deal when you’re deep into the summer here in Texas.  An afternoon rain shower means the temperature may drop ten degrees.  Not that it ever gets cool,  it’s more like turning your oven from broil to bake.

Addison must have heard me quietly mumbling, asking the weather gods for mercy.  Or maybe it was the not so subtle rain dance I was doing in the back yard.  Either way, we’re all pretty happy when it rains.
