We went from hot, sunny days in the 100s to cloudy days in the 90s, with a bit of rain here and there. This morning was pretty pleasant – mostly sunny, and in the low 80s. I spent a bit of quality time reading on the patio.
This afternoon I was making a little afternoon tea, and thought it would be nice to have it outside on the deck. I went out to check the temperature, and it was pleasant, with a pretty blue sky dotted with white clouds. Perfect:

We had tea indoors, and in about half an hour, the rain started. We went out on the front porch to enjoy it (for the 15 minutes it lasted).
Then the sun came out and the blue skies returned. All within an hour.
My little desktop weather icon summed up the day pretty well:
ETA: About an hour later, it was again dark and gray. We sat on the front porch for a while, enjoying the cooler temperatures. Then the tall trees behind the houses across the street started waving wildly about. I said “Look at that – it looks like a horror movie when the monster is coming.” Within 5 seconds, torrential rain began to pour. The monster had arrived.
