It Happened Again: The Thunderstorm That Didn't

The wind came up; the black clouds rolled over, the thunder boomed

It looked so welcome. After a day of sporadic clouds and a high of "only" 99 degrees, we appeared to be getting lucky. Heavy dark clouds rolled in. There were bolts of lightning and crashes of thunder.

The clouds rolled on. The sky cleared.

Nary a drop of rain fell.

The forecast: A cooling trend continues for tomorrow, only 97 for a high, whoo-hoo! Then we're back to triple digits for the rest of the week. Rain? Nah.
