At Last...Rain!

Yeah!  After four weeks we finally got some rain, 1.75" to date.  I can't believe the difference it already made in my yard.

The first storm rolled in on Sunday night.  We had a good two hours of thunder and lightning before it finally let loose and rained.  It had been so long since we'd had a gusher like this that we went out on the front porch to watch it rain - and noticed nearly every neighbor on the street was doing the same thing.

Let's hope this continues.  Not only for the farmers, but for Hubby.  It's killing him that we're under a burn ban and he can't use his grill (he refuses to get a gas one.)

It's raining cats and dogs in India...I'll try to will some of it your way ;)

Really though, just wanted to pop in and let you know that I've nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. I am a former middle school teacher, and though I don't comment nearly enough I still pop in to read your blog when I start to feel nostalgic for my teaching days...wanted to send you a shout-out to say thanks for all the great posts!
