Wow, the weirdest thing just happened. I went out on the balcony to water the flowers and saw that it was raining. Well, it was raining and the sun was out and there was a rainbow right over me. It was stunningly lovely. Then I looked again.

Wait, what? It was only raining in a 10 sq ft area, right off my balcony. Wtf? A tiny little rain shower, concentrated right in that small area, only there, right centered as if it was for me alone. I peered up and over and it wasn't coming from the roof, it was coming from the sky. No rain just a few feet to the left or right. A guy on his bike road by on the sidewalk, below me, and rode right through the little shower, looked up confusedly as he got spritzed, and carried on. The shower lasted 10 minutes or so, just a little tiny micro-rain.

I have seen some strange concentrated showers before (once in Austin it rained in my front yard, but not in the back) but never one this small. You can see below, on the street, where it is wet, and then dry all around.

So crazy. So beautiful.


  1. I meant to comment earlier. You look amazing. I wish I had the gumption to diet and exercise, just ain't happnin. Keep it up girl!

  2. It must be a sign! Maybe you are the Chosen One. At least the one chosen to have your plants watered.
