The rain that has been forecast by the weatherpeople for several days might well appear today. A few small, scattered raindrops on Mr. Nitro as I drove to my office at 7:15 AM this morning. There is no wind, fortunately, but it is overcast and relatively cold. Anticipating foul weather, I clad myself in long trousers and shoes. Yikes! It is beginning to sprinkle now (8:10 AM). I sincerely hope the May flowers appreciate the rain. The birds and I do not!
