Rain!

Rain at MalvedosThis evening there was a sudden and distinct change in the weather with the appearance of threatening storm clouds on the horizon. Since then there has been some light rain and some lightening in the distance.
The temperature has cooled and there is that characteristic smell in the air of when very dry terrain is refreshed by water.
 It has now stopped and I can see some stars outside so perhaps it was just a passing shower. But a welcome one to be sure.
