It looked like rain here in the desert this evening, I was sitting on the patio watching the clouds. Instead of rain, everything changed and turned into this.

Beautiful. Windows open, blue sky with a soft white haze. Comfortable.

Finally! We had quite the rain! I couldn't see the barn from the house. And it lasted for over 30 minutes--it is still raining lightly 2 hours later. We have SOOOOO needed a good soaking. It is supposed to rain off and on all week--hopefully it will help the ground water table. It is too late for the gardens and crops--our killing frost re: tender plants is only about 3 weeks away.

It's overcast here and there is rain in the forecast. I guess we will be getting your rain. I hope it's a good drenching. It's so dry here that the weeds are dying and the creeping charlies are all wilted.

Gorgeous pic, Cheryl!

Hotter than blazes here, and muggy.

The temps have been in the 60's all day with rain. More rain for tomorrow. It is the tail end of Isaac. Gee, thank folks. There is another storm in the tropics right now and it is supposed to kiss the outer Cape and head for the Maritime Provinces. that will keep the fishing fleet in shore.

High of 96F today in a hot & muggy SE S.D. There are thunderstorm warnings about an hour west of us. It is really cooling down nicely this evening.
