unexpected rain -- a San Diego monsoon

So yesterday Wendy and I washed her black Honda.

Then today I got home earlier and washed my truck.

Since my truck was blocking the tiny garage Wendy parked it elsewhere.

I dried the truck and then went inside.

Lingering, I finally decided to move my truck and put her car in the garage.

Too late. The thunderhead had already started dropping its dusty rain, all over her shiny black car.

I drove it to shelter but it was all spotted with water.

My truck too is all rained on.

I am a 2TL... two-time loser.

ha ha!

They say that's how the native Americans used to call upon the rain when they needed it. They'd go wash their horses and polish the saddles. Sure enough, it would immediately rain right after that.
