The heat breaks

This morning a strong rainstorm has broken the heat. I guess the tropical storm in south Texas has finally filtered upwards to us.
I always feel that summer ends when that first big September rainstorm hits us, usually a by-product of a hurricane or tropical storm in the Gulf of Mexico.

I'm eager now for cool weather--not cold weather, but that mild evening chill with a tang like a fresh snap bean. I'm eager for leaves to turn red and yellow, for temperatures to stay well below 85 and for cooling, redeeming rain.
