Today is not the day for relaxing on the beach. A light rain has been falling all morning, and forcasters are calling for a 70% chance of rain all day, with a possibility of thunderstorms. The sky is pewter gray. Pearls of water are dripping from the cedars, live oaks, and yaupons. The scene from my window is so different from the bright, sunny days of last week, but there is a certain tranquil beauty in this rainy, springtime morning.
