Refreshing Rain

We got a much needed rain today. I tried to mow this past week but the dust was so bad that I quit. Tonight the air is cooler and the dust is settled. Made these pictures from the front porch this afternoon:

Rascal and I watched the rain. He sure was wanting to chase the squirrels.

See, no more dust!
