It has been more than 50 days since it rained at my house. The last rain we got was so light that I had to stand outside and feel the mist to tell that it was "raining." And that mist only lasted 5 minutes. It didn't even make the ground wet.
So you can imagine my joy, my rapture, my ecstasy when we came out of the YMCA to see rain--real, pouring, glorious rain! The kids and I ran through that amazing and glorious downpour to the car.
It rained for 40 minutes!! I was so excited that I took my umbrella and walked around the house to the garden in the rain to see the garden. I knew that rain would help my garden more than any efforts I made. I just wanted to actually see it rain in my garden. It rained today. In my garden. I am overjoyed. I could dance around the house!
See that? Rain!!
