the rain begins

It been raining for about an hour and there’s almost no sound except for the rain hitting the ground and the fan in my window. Usually there are voices, music or movie soundtracks from other apartments and the sound of cars and sirens from the street. But tonight only the rain and my fan.

milestone or millstone

I have finished donating my books to the local library. The rules allow 20 books, dvds or cds a day. It’s taken since the beginning of summer.

before, after or in between

This picture was taken just after a sun shower/hail storm and a few hours before a thunderstorm/hail storm. Is there anything during this in between that suggests the before or after?
