Rain or shine? We’ll take a little shine
Summer rain is good for trees and grass, but after a while it can be annoying for man and beast.

Farther north, one man uses a folder as an umbrella as he crosses 11th Street in front of the Capitol. The forecast calls for clearing skies today and sunshine through the weekend. But could the year’s first 100-degree day be on the way?
