one knows that it's going to rain when ...

... the early morning sun hits the Cerrillos Hills, with the dark sky behind, so that it looks like they're covered in snow.  And it spattered and dripped on and off throughout the day, and then started to come down in true earnest this evening, with my favorite iPhone weather app, Dark Sky, pinging excitedly to tell me that lightning had struck - say - four miles away, and move to a safe place, now.  The Peaceable Kingdom didn't like being disturbed as I drove up after an evening out - a tiny rabbit sheltering under Alice's car felt obliged to hop off into the damp, and the bird that roosts on the light by the front door flew crossly out into the downpour - but I'm so very grateful for it all.
