It’s cliche, and the title of a song by ’80s glam metal band Cinderella, to say you don’t know what you got till it’s gone. Even in the desert, we never realized how accustomed to getting rain we were, until it stopped coming.
That’s why Tuesday was so astounding, wasn’t it? How familiar all the signs of rain were, but how foreign.
It starts when someone walks outside and says, “It looks like it could rain today.”
And you don’t really believe them, but you want to, and any excuse to step outside is a good one.
