Rain!!!

After 80+ days without rain I finally feel raindrops on my head.

It's 0330 HRS and I just woke up to go to the bathroom. Now I'm going to go sit on the front porch and just watch the rain fall.

Rain!!!

Thankfully, I have a lot of help to make sure I don't miss such things.  I no kidding got a phone call at 0335 telling me we had lightning.  Then eight minutes later another control center called to tell me the same thing.  Then a couple minutes after that, the dog stuck his nose on my arm and said, "As long as you're up..."

Um, you went to the bathroom, and felt raindrops on your herad?  Using an outhouse, are we???? Wink

Had a really wet winter here, but not so much lately.  We could use some too. Glad to see you are getting some rain!

EDIT TO ADD:

 

God I hate this!

I posted a reply but because I wasn't using Google Chrome my typed response to the quote was deleted.

Using the outhouse beats peeing in the  corner of the bedroom on the floor. That tends to upset She Who Must Be Obeyed.

It's good to see some of the areas that need rain so badly are finally getting some. Hopefully it holds on for awhile and is not just one system moving through. It's funny how areas not that far apart can be so different as here in Colorado where I live we have only had a couple of weeks with none at all. And I know there are parts of the country that are praying that they not get anymore for awhile till things settle down with all the flooding they have been getting.

For those who need it I hope you get just enough.

More Rain

We I guess my rain dances are working as we had a good rain last night, July 04, 2011, and that makes for two days in a row of that precious moisture.

The weather forecast is predicting 30% chances of rain all week which for us is almost a 100% guarantee of rain. As I get older it seems that the drought conditions have gotten worse but maybe I just didn't pay attention to this stuff when I was younger?

I'm in hopes that New Mexico can get some rain too but it appears that the storms are blowing westward towards California. Hang in there folks and as Baxter Black says, "Hang on and pray for rain." That's really about all we can do anyway.
