Response to Wednesday Writing Prompt

This is in response to oneoveralpha ’s Wednesday Writing Prompt here .

Today’s prompt: rain.

This is what I wrote:

Yes, I wish it would rain.

I know there are plenty of places that have too much of it and that’s a very unpleasant thing. Right now it’s 84.3°F with 36% humidity and gusts of wind up to 8.4 mph. There’s not a cloud in the sky. The lawn is turning brown because of watering restrictions.

We’ve noticed people going for “drought tolerant” landscaping recently. There’s some rebate from the state. Some of the yards look sharp. Some of them look like a desert. One of our neighbors put in an uncovered patio in the front yard. It look quite sharp, but I bet it gets hotter than a pistol when the sun is out, making it useless for much of the year.

So. I wish it would rain.

No, not yet. Clouds in the sky, not a drop on the ground. But if you could spare some of your rain....
