The weather yesterday was typical of an early spring day in Michigan. It was relatively warm, but it was raining and every inch of ground was gray, soggy, and wet. After I finished teaching for the day, I borrowed a pair of rubber boots and pulled out my umbrella and Charlie and I sloshed through a couple of laps on my parents' driveway. It was pathetic.
Then in the evening I noticed it had stopped raining and the sun was turning the sky incredible colors as it dropped in the west. So, I loaded Charlie up and we drove half a mile down the road to a side country road where we took a short evening jaunt. It was refreshing.
