This is so beautiful this morning.  We woke up to rain, not just a light rain, which it is doing now, but a full our right downpour!  And it poured for about an hour.  This is amazing!  I know a lot of you probably don't even know why I'm so excited about the rain.  But living in the desert southwest we pray for rain almost every day.  We are so far behind in our water this year because we had very little snows up north in the winter that our lakes, our water supply for the valley is very low again.  We already had a few forest fires and they are warning people to be careful camping up north.  In fact they forest services have issued no campfires again. in the desert can be a good thing in the dead of winter, but a bad thing in the summers.  sigh....  I don't think there's any place that's perfect right?  At least we don't have natural disasters, like hurricanes, tornadoes (too hot for those) very little earthquake activity, we just fry in the summer months.

Have a great day, I'm going to take a cup of coffee and go sit on my patio and watch the rain come down.  It's beautiful!!!

Very happy for your rain, Donna!

One of these days, I'll be sipping tea with you on your verandah, and we'll watch the rain together :)
