You Know You Need Rain When…

Everywhere you go–the grocery store, the post office, the bank–everyone’s talking about it. The woman behind me in line at the grocery store said she’d just texted her husband: It’s going to rain!

Yep. It wasn’t supposed to until Sat night, so I looked at the forecast and it changed it’s mind and said this morning at 4 am. Well, it rained at 7 am. And you know what? I don’t care! Just as long as we get it. But no flooding. Thank you very much. We have heavy thunderstorms starting in 15 mins, and it was nice out, cool even, so I was out pulling grass in the light rain. Yes!

We’re supposed to have rain for around ten days. Yay! But please don’t flood.

I considered going around to take a picture around the block, lightning was flashing and it can strike from 10 miles away, so I thought better of it.

The mystery. And as you can see, the system started out at the last picture shown, and then ended up in the massive one way above the homes.

Today, it’s just gray. But that’s okay. Because rain is coming! And I’m 2,000 ahead on word count again! And I have 2 bears orders to get out. And more critiques to do. And…I need to get to work!

Have a wonderful day! It’s cooler here!!! Woohoo!
