It has been raining for a week. I promised my nieces & nephew that we would go back to the park with the water if the sun came out.
It did, for 20 minutes. By the time I got everyone into swimsuits and at the park, the sky was gray again. And 60 degrees. Not that that bothers these kids.
After 20 minutes, there was one flash of lightening, directly overhead. We scrambled to the car, along with about 30 other cars full of families, stripped off wet suits and jumped in. 6 minutes later, as we were blocks from home, the sun peeked out again.
In Arizona, we always told visitors “It’s a dry heat”.
New home, new quote: “If you don’t like the weather in Colorado, wait 5 minutes”.
