We did get our monsoon rain yesterday evening. It was the first real pound-down rain of the summer so far. It poured hard for probably 20 minutes or so before moving off. The drainage ditch in front of our home was running full. I went out after the rain stopped and moved some rocks and debris to the side so it would drain better.
Later - supper. A plate of cold shrimp I had cooked in the afternoon, good homemade cocktail sauce put together by SWMBO, some warm Brie and crackers, wine and this beautiful relish plate SWMBO created.
I have to admit none of the produce came from our garden this time. The grocery stores provided all of it. But it was all very tasty and perfect for a hot summer night.
