Imagine my surprise when I encountered this scene while passing the park on the way to my office this morning! Click to enlarge.

The rain that was forecast for yesterday did arrive—albeit briefly: It rained lightly for approximately 45 seconds yesterday afternoon. Today's weather report calls for "Mostly cloudy. Scattered rain showers in the morning... then isolated rain showers in the afternoon. Highs 57 to 63. South winds around 10 mph." The sky looks ominous currently. It may easily rain with considerably more might than predicted. Where, oh where has spring gone? I quickly became accustomed to the 80°+ weather!
