The Wet Quiet of Spring

We returned home from a long medical day. A light rain started falling. Three days of high humidity and now the rain brings the clouds below the tops of the Appalachians. You see mountains for a few hundred yards up the slope but everything above that is lost in the mist. Tonight a cold front slowly passes but will have little wind. This sets up conditions for fog yielding to sun in the morning when the waning moon will still be high in the sky. In the meantime, the night will be very quiet, wet, and still. It reminded me when we began sketching the heavens a little over 5 years ago, when this sketch was done under similar conditions during a mid evening period in May 2007:

And even in view of the greatness of our God, He provides such exquisite conditions for little people in little places to see something special. I still remember the night. Tonight, a few years later, is a good night to give thanks–remembering His blessings as well as experiencing new ones today.
