It has been steamy all week. Widely scattered thunderstorms have been rolling through daily.
All is well, then in the course of half an hour the sky turns black, thunder rumbles and lighting flashes. It could very easily just be a loud tempest signifying nothing. These storms are small and it takes a direct hit to get any water out of them.
But when you do it comes in buckets.
Then poof, it's gone. The sun comes out and steam begins to rise.
I don't stay out there with the lightning and thunder. In these parts we are much closer to the clouds. I manage to get thoroughly drenched anyway. Drip, drip, drip, the steam rises and the sweat pours down.
Steamy is exhausting. It wears me out. I've had to take a few naps this week.
When the sun gets low, hopefully it cools a bit and the steam subsides, a post nap stroll is nice. The garden doesn't seem to mind steamy.
