Home in the Rain

Last night while we were onstage the roof rumbled with rain and hail.  We just turned up the sound a little.  Driving home in the dark I hit some pelting stuff but then it eased off and I listened to AM radio skip until I pulled into the yard.  This morning the girls and I went to the post office and noticed how – despite the precipitous drop in temperature since balmy yesterday – the green buds are popping in the wake of the rain.  Saw a marsh hawk, mourning doves, rabbits, and entertained ourselves just now watching a chicken eat an earthworm.  So spring is here.  For now.  That said, we are now building a fire in the woodstove, the better to enjoy the green-tinged but gray day.
