From torrential rain to sunshine

I woke up this morning to the sound of torrential rain. It was raining so hard that if I hadn't used an umbrella to retrieve this morning's (nicely double-plastic-bagged) newspaper from my front walk I would have been soaked to the skin.

Rain, dark gray skies, warm...

The rain stopped relatively early in the morning, and a strong wind pushed the clouds away leaving a clear blue sky. The temperature jumped to the high 60s. Ah, warmth, definitely not December's normal chill.

I couldn't resist. I headed home early enough to start my walk in daylight. Walking, absorbing my surroundings, attired in warm weather clothing, happy.
