We Got (Some) Moisture!

Yesterday afternoon we started to get a few scattered raindrops now and then which left everyone on pins and needles wondering if it would turn into something we could actually count as rain falling on our parched part of the state.

The evening hours brought us a steady rain, if a little on the light side. But, hey, we were mighty thankful for any moisture.

My hubby sat up late reading last night and this morning reported that it was raining at a wonderfully steady rate when he called it a night.

This morning the front deck was dry and there were no puddles anywhere to be seen but the air was heavy and gray and we could hear thunder off in the distance.

A few minutes ago, light and steady rain started coming down again so we're holding out hopes of more today.

Because of the extreme fire danger situation we've been under, this would be a weekend when no one would mind at all if it rained continuously! Keep your fingers crossed.

  4. Well yes, you know why I'm here today - to wish you a Happy Birthday. :>) Glad you got some rain as well - I'm sure the sound of thunder is a worry when the grass is so dry. Have a great weekend.

  6. Gosh, ladies (Erin, Claire, Patty, Conny, and Jen), thank you so much for taking the time to send birthday greetings. I appreciate it!

    We could have a week of rain and I don't think it would be too much for the dry, dry forests to take.

    What kind of a cake will I have? Not being much of a cake eater, but loving pie, my dear daughter makes me a Banana Cream Pie that we stick a candle (or two or fifty or so) in!
