Walking back from the pub along unlit roads I was very aware of light, so a sudden brief flash from nowhere surprised me. It took the second time for me to realise what it was, and then a long wait for the thunder, faintly somewhere on the edge of the sky.

With a skyful of stars overhead there was never any immediate danger, but it was an odd thing to be followed home by the ghost of a storm.

(An hour or so later and still no rain - I won't be sorry if it comes, because last night was too hot to sleep, and tonight will be worse.)
