There was no Torah Study scheduled this morning, so Diane and I had time to take a longer walk than usual before services. The weather forecast called for rain off and on all day; we were lucky and took advantage of a mostly dry interval between 9 and 10am. We got sprinkled on a little bit, but we were also treated to a gorgeous rainbow.
The rain picked up soon after we got home – there were even some booms of thunder towards the end of the service, around 11:45am, which is unusual for this time of year. We had no plans to go anywhere, so we enjoyed the Shabbat quiet at home for the rest of the day.
