After a Drought

River running high . . .
Mist floating on the mountain . . .
Long dry, the earth drinks deep.

Bare limbs all bejeweled,
Nature celebrates -- donning
Liquid finery.

Tiny waterfalls,
Tumbling riverwards,
Sing redemption songs.

I only wish I had my rain gauge out to see how much rain we've had in the past 24 hours, but after at least 2 years or more, our little creek out back is flowing, actually roaring, and we are having an absolute downpour right now. Thank goodness for all the little rains we've had prior to this or we would be in big trouble.

Oh wonderful, wonderful rain. Dare we hope that this is the start of a good growing year?

The rains have come to Georgia too. Wonderful misty days with showers; I think Seattle is getting all the snow because we have their usual weather, all drizzly. It's probably not because we got a second rain barrel, but there has been rain every single day since we got it. Maybe a modern version of a rain dance...who knows?

The rain has turned to big fluffy snow tonight -- beautiful! We were past the three inch mark in the rain gauge this morning; you all probably got lots more, Pat -- we're on the dry side of the mountains.

Fingers crossed, Sue -- it's a good start anyway.

A rain barrel -- on our to do list but not yet done. A way to ensure a wet summer? You could be onto something, Lynne.
