Very windy rain showers hit Milwaukee around mid-day today. I took this series of photos from my office window after returning from a couple of meetings around three o’clock.
For some reason the title of a favorite picture book of my younger daughter’s popped into my head. The Rain Came Down is a charming, beautifully structured and illustrated story, highly recommended if you have children in your life around ages 3 to 5, maybe even up to 7 years old. The story introduces various people in a city going about their business and then losing their tempers when a sudden squall hits. Finally, as the sun comes out, they calm down and make nice with each other, bringing equilibrium and equanimity to the still-dripping disorder.
Obviously my little “picture book” blog post today shows only the downpour’s happy ending, so I titled it accordingly 🙂
