I stepped out onto our stair tonight to look up at the sky as I took Rimfire out – barefoot, of course.
I felt rain under my toes, but there had been no precipitation.
“Dew,” I thought, “like that…”
Yes, like that time I realized recently.
I’d always heard of dew points, and had it explained to me multiple times. I read about dew, and felt it in the early morning rambles. But never had I felt it form as the night wore on.
I was up so late, with the sky so dark, and the hours stretching so long that I felt the dew form. I saw it condense on the doors, felt the unassuming droplets under my hand as I picked up each item. I sensed the misty water form around me and settle on every single object.
And finally, I knew where dew came from!
It was so cool.
What is one of your fondest or most a-ha late night memories?
