Thank you Lord.....it's raining!!

This is just a drop in the bucket with this terrible drought, but tonight we're having the first measurable rain since last April. It sounds so wonderful, we sat on the porch tonight just watching and listening. It's been so very long since we could hear rain falling from inside the house it just sounds so comforting. Wonder of all wonders, our TV is out because of it. Rain, beautiful rain!!!

Kayelle I hope you get about three to five days of continuous rain. Not enough to cause any flooding, but just enough to soak into the earth and replenish, even if just partial, so that your world can start to flourish again. Good Luck and enjoy!

Rain, glorious rain! And one for the rain!

Kayelle, time to be singin' in the rain! Hope you get a nice amount that shrinks the drought level.


We've got winds out our way too now Addie. So far the roof is still on the house...

I love the ocean. I don't think I could live without it. But living just a block away can be scary at times. I sometimes wish I still had that stupid innocence of youth. As a kid I thought storms were great. Very exciting.

Mrs. DF sent this to me
this was taken on Oct 9th
at Willow Lake in Prescott Arizona
a huge lightening storm cell
Mother Nature can be frightening as well as awesome
I just wish that we could share some of our rain this Monsoon Season
with California, the fruit and veggie basket to the USofA
(click on the photo to see it larger, very cool)

Beautiful pic, K-girl.

We had a cloudy, breezy, but balmy 68F here along the mighty Mississip. Friends who live in Mexico got down to 64, and were freezing their tortillas off.

WOW...I clicked on that picture and it looks just terrifying! I'd be hiding under my bed!

Our rain didn't last more than several hours a few nights ago, but we did get 1 1/2 inches at our house and everything looked so fresh and clean the next day. My skylights in the house are actually clean again!

I just saw a show the other day about sudden heavy rain storms in the Arizona desert. Frightening.

We got a little rain on Halloween night during the wee hours. I didn't hear it, but woke up to see that some water did fall from the sky.

It's been in the 80's here during the day lately, and down in the 50's at night. Supposed to start cooling down to the mid 70's by the middle of next week. The leaves are just now starting to turn color. I love fall.

Massive winds and a high of 45F here along the river.
