Well, it didn’t add up to much, but we finally did get some rain last night. The foreguess is that more is on the way later this afternoon and the following three days. I’ll believe it when I see it. The Holyoke Mountain Range runs east to west and that configuration often acts as a shunt, pushing weather north or south of us. That has been the weather pattern here in both summer and winter for the last few years. We get to listen to the thunder and watch the lightning as it happens in either direction. Last night the bulk of the rain stayed south of the mountains so we’ll see what transpires later on.
Yesterday, in an effort to guarantee that we got some rain, I ran my car through the car wash, hung out some laundry, and fired up the grill. Just as I was about to lay the meat on the fire the rain started. Not so much that I got wet and later, after I closed the grill, I noticed some interesting puddles atop the stainless steel and got out the camera and tripod for a few exposures. Here’s the proof.
Once again, Photobomb Steve got a few selfies in.
I opted for the 100 macro as I had to stand atop a cooler so I could look down on the grill cover and at that I was almost too close to the drops to get a sharp focus. The 180 would have required an eight foot ladder.
