The rain began again. It fell heavily, easily, with no meaning or intention but the fulfillment of its own nature, which was to fall and fall.
– Helen Garner
A cool, cloudy, rainy day in July is a rare thing in Colorado. Sure, we expect afternoon thunderstorms to occur, but only after a sizzling hot summer’s day. To have an entire day of rain and temperatures in the 60s this time of year is very odd. I’m certainly not ready to give up summer yet, but I must admit that a taste of fall during the height of the summer is a refreshing twist.
