We were very happy that the sky wasn't summer pure blue.
Since then, there have been clouds, but no rain.
And even though we did get a strong, quick "first rain" during Succot, less than a month ago, I only noticed one of the crocus flowers which usually herald winter.

I usually see many of these during this season here in Shiloh, but so far I haven't. Finally, when I visited my grandkids in Ofra I spotted this near their home.
The meteorologists are predicting rain for Shabbat and much colder weather than we've had so far. I'll have to let you know after Shabbat. And I have to remember to close some of the windows we've left open since the summer. We've passed the date when a sunny day can be called a nice day. Now, the only truly nice days are wet. Of course we do need some dry sunny ones in between, but without rain we're in trouble.
