Yesterday we put up a garden gate. We started staining it yesterday, immediately causing just enough rain to get us to stop. Today I began staining it again, causing a light drizzle, which stopped as soon as I put the stain away.
I waited a while, then brought out the stain to give it another go. I set up a step-ladder, carefully placed the can of stain on the top of the ladder, climbed up and started to work. This caused a very dark cloud to appear out of nowhere, followed by a clap of thunder loud enough to make the dogs to jump and run to the door. I came down from the ladder, put everything away and made it inside just as the sky opened up.
I believe the universe was telling me to go have a nap. I will oblige.
