This photo was taken on August 8, 2021 at 8:20 AM,
The location was at my home in Beltsville, Maryland.
The "Take It!" came after several years of using this as a reference point.
The path from the steps of my back porch to the gravel driveway where I usually park my car has two concrete sections. The one closest to the steps has a set of irregular cracks in it which
after a rain and having absorbed water during the downpour - have the edges of the cracks dry later than the surrounding smooth surfaced concrete.
It is by viewing these peripheral wet places through the window in the back door, that I can estimate how long it has been since it last rained. From this I can get a small idea of what to
expect on the roadways when I take off for a trip in my car.
Little cues are many times very helpful.
Here is hoping you too, have a set of cues which you may subconsciously rely upon in addition to the wealth of information available on our phones.
All the best,
