We were so stunned when dark clouds appeared on sky. After few minutes small rains came and soon rain drops appeared stronger.I put my hand on the open glass window hoping for some drops to wet my hand and it was fulfilled. We were so happy for few minutes.Yes, we had that few minutes of joy. We saw our lawn covered with small flood above the feet. That strong rain lasted only for 25 minutes, so short, but it watered all plants and crops in the nearby fields perfectly. This time no more rain. When rain stopped, thunder followed with a sharp lightning for closure.I told God, " please rain only no thunder and lightning, we are so scared of them."The two associates in sky stopped when rain stopped. We are so happy here this evening.It is not so hot now. Image credit: Pixabay

We only want a normal rain, not that would cause floods in some area. Water is very essential.
