The wind is high outside, but the rain isn't having any of it. It's coming down STRAIGHT. Heavy. It's coming down in CHUNKS, hunks, wads, masses. It's so big it looks like hail in the air - but there is no hail on the ground.
I only hope it lasts more than a couple of minutes (*). We need the dousing. Plus, this is cooling us down, so that's a benefit I won't mind. It'll bump the humidity - let it do the rest effectively.
(*Blah. It didn't.)
