Falling sky.

Nearly every day this week, our sunny skies have clouded over and opened and dropped at least one hailstorm on us, only to go sunny again within minutes. Powerful systems are passing through these parts.

On a rare day when we had no hail (and only a smattery spitting of rain in the late afternoon), a friend and I wandered out across Grantchester Meadows, taking advantage of the 8:30 sundown to have dinner in a sunlit garden. Returning, we saw the world turned upside down, a different sort of skyfall, just right for the conversation she and I had had all evening.
