Sunrise 6:57: Bring on the rain

After a winter of low rainfall and daily viewing of parched hillsides, the female Dawn Jogger welcomed the sound of raindrops overnight. It had let up by the time she started out on her Saturday Big Dish run but she wasn't surprised to be caught in a number of showers over the seven mile route. Given the mild temperature, she was surprised that such a slight bit of weather had dissuaded so many others from a morning on the Dish - only two cars were parked at the Piers Lane entrance when she passed by about 8:00. Going up the first hill, she thought about what a great photo the male DJ could have shot in black and white with one of his Leica cameras (and later decided to turn Silvio's color shot into just that). The rain had brought out flocks of birds pecking in the damp earth as well as the smell of ashes remaining from last summer's fire. Saturday runs have always been a great way to mark seasonal changes...
