The rains came tumbling down
Soooo, the rains came tumbling down yesterday.
Okay, I'll tell the truth -- I might have exaggerated slightly, since the rains didn't really come tumbling. They mostly sprinkled for a bit and then quit. Sprinkled for another few minutes and then quit. But, it's been so hot and dry, that every little sprinkly bit helps.
The birds loved it, the lawn soaked it in, and the trees waved their leaves in excitement. If it had rained harder I'd have pulled the car out of the garage and let it wash the dust off. No such luck, though.
Still, I'm not complaining. Today's weather is cooler and we have cloud cover. So, even though we didn't get as much moisture as we needed, there is the side benefit that we're not quite as roasty-toasty as before.
Aaaaahhh, Mother Nature. Ya gotta love her ... at least when she cooperates and tones down the hot flashes!
