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.
Gardening officially started!
