I do appreciate that some of you reading this in places other than Northern New Mexico might have difficulty in appreciating quite why it's so exciting to see rain dripping from our canales - sticking out gutter thingies - but after months and months of dryness, one can allow oneself to dream that the monsoon season might actually arrive.  And even if this only lasted ten minutes or so, the soil and plants all started to give off the wonderful fresh, pinony, chamisa-y fragrance that they have after rain, and I instantly remembered why summers are so very good here.
