I was laying on the roof of the shelter -- 25 ft up there. The first bands
were coming in. You could see the clear delineation -- between bright sun
to the North West -- and dark cloud coming in from the South East.

The cement was so warm -- I just laid there feeling the heat.

Winds started gusting -- tree tops besides me waving. Little mists of light

Winds got stronger -- black heavy over cast came in deeper.

About 5 minutes to 2:00 PM the first slash of strong rain began falling --
and I came in.

This lasted until 2:10. Just a taste of what is in store for us. Light
steady rain now.
