In 2009 my good friend Mark had just moved to Austin Texas. After he settled in I came to Austin to visit him. As soon as I landed in Austin I realized that Mark was not exaggerating about how hot it was. It was 90 but felt like way over 100. One day it suddenly got cooler as the clouds rolled in. It got darker and it started raining. All I could hear was the much needed rain, birds and distant thunder. This was also the first time I saw fireflies. It was a really nice evening, and everyone welcomed the cooling rain. Now its 2011 and Austin is going through a major drought. My friend said that what is usually a really green city, is a shade of dry brown. Hope this rain comes back soon....
