Before I say anything about today's picture, I'll note that our region got between 10 and 12 inches / 25.4 - 30.5 cm of rain yesterday. That blew away the old record set in 1915 and, in fact, was much more than the average rainfall for July and August combined. Some areas had severe damage while others were unharmed. My home and neighborhood had soggy lawns but nothing more.

Anyway, this is another IR in Forest Park on a recent very hot day. We call the building at the upper left the World's Fair Pavilion, a leftover from the 1904 international exposition. (And we had the Olympics that year, too. We used to be somebody.) The slope ends at a multi-terraced fountain, waterfall and pool that kids love.
