Here in the south, we have this lovely plague of afternoon thundershowers.

A hot, steamy blue sky is suddenly black with clouds, and then the bottom drops out,
often while you're pushing a cart full of groceries out to your car.

The temperatures have been in the 100's, and the air quality near Atlanta is horrid. Some mornings, you can see the smog. So the kids don't get as much time outside as I'd like.

Usually the afternoon storms are all thundery.

Yesterday, it wasn't.

Barefoot, half-naked children frolicking in the summer rain with their dad.

I hope they remember that moment.

I will.
