Glorious Wet Rain...
See that sheen on the pavement? That glisten? Today we had rain! It began as a mist and then truly rained. Nothing measurable or well-filling yet. Just glorious wet rain falling from heaven. Thank you Water Gods.
I put on my rain boots and drove the roads with the windshield wipers on full. It is a welcome sight and sound. Tonight we are supposed to get more rain and the ski resorts are to get snow. I hope it pours. The year we bought our home here it rained a total of 119 inches. Every month it rained. What a difference a few years can make. We have had zero rain for 54 days and broke every record for heat and dryness. Very scary for us here in the forest.
I am so very thankful for this rain and I hope it continues. I remember the first January we moved here it rained every day and night. I was afraid Mr. C would need to build an Ark. I wondered why anyone would live where there was no sunshine. Having moved from "Disneyland" where the sun shone and the weather was perfect everyday I did not like all that rain and I definitely did not like the snow and ice that followed. Now after having a total scare of our well running out of water one night...life is different for me. I shall embrace all the rain we can get. With my rain boots I can weather any storm. Thank you everyone for your prayers and well (no pun intended) wishes. May it rain and fill our earth with nourishment.
Creative projects are progressing and I will share on my next post. Right now rain has preceded all else.
Wishing safety and warmth for all in the Polar Vortex and frigid snow and ice regions. Hot Chocolate Hugs for you.
Remembering my friends who are sweltering with their summers right now. Iced Lemonade Hugs for you. For me...let it rain...and I shall drink water and toast to the heavens.
