The storms of the weekend, unrealized, seemed to gather last night around 6 to deliver the rain that prompted all the exciting flood warnings of days ago.
Clouds gathered, darkened, broke part, massed again. They made for good light but nothing happened.
On the terrace I was surprised to find plants wilting and actually asking for water. I am my only irrigation system. Pots do not benefit from groundwater, so even cloudy days are work days or the Waterers.
Sunset was a broad charcoal smudge over Jersey, but Turner-pink to the east, which my terrace faces.
Sometime deep into the small hours, it rained at last. Heavy footsteps on the roof early this morning makes me think that perhaps the gutter flooded again and was being Monitored.
