First Spring rain

I was sitting in my little studio, working at finishing a painting for our show on Saturday – nothing like last minute. Suddenly it got dark and started to rain hard. Our first rain of the spring, and very welcome. We have winter, with snow for about 5 months. During the transition to spring, when things start to grow, we have dust season. As the snow melts, all the road sand and dirt starts to blow, and it is really grotty. So I am always very happy when we start to get rains that will wash down the dust, until the street sweepers get out and start to pick up the grime, usually into May. So rain away. I can see my thyme plant out in the back yard, suddenly turn green, washed down with the rain. Yahoo, spring is really on the way now.
