Whenever I see dark clouds I think of rain. Here the sky doesn't work in the same way. Dark clouds mean lightnings, and that is about it. This past three days the sky has been a little more cloudy than usual. Although the clouds are not completely dark nor cover the whole sky, they did brought rain this time.
I was sitting outside the building, waiting for the time to come when I had my first class of the day, when I felt a drop of water fell on my arm. "What the fuck is that?", I thought. The last thing I thought that drop was in that moment was rain. But as I felt many more drops I realized that it might be, in fact, rain. A kind-of-gray cloud was covering like 10% of the sky right above me; the day was clear as always though. One by one, the drops of rain painted the concrete of the plaza. By the time my class had ended I went out and saw all these little puddles formed in the floor. A very nostalgic moment, I most say. It doesn't rain like back in my country.
Today it happened again. I was walking down the street towards the central plaza of Orange (La Plazuela but smaller) and a few blocks before getting there, it started raining. Compared to the heavy rain I remember, it was a joke, but it was a relief from the extremely hot weather that I now have to bear. I wonder why it didn't spontaneously rained last sunday, when the thermometers where showing temperatures above 40º Celsius.
