We Got Rain!

Yes, a few days ago, we got rain! It was only 3/8 inch but it was so wonderful, we sat on our front porch and got wet watching it. Then, only two days later, we received that much, again, putting us at 3/4 inch. Not much, but we were silly with excitement.

Then, of course, I just had to photograph it and see what would show up.

In the camera viewfinder, the drops did not look as if they would show, but here they are:

I took MANY shots, but I know although I could look at many more, you might prefer just one. I chose to show how big the drops were and how steam was rising as the water landed on our hot, hot world. Also a view of our parched grass appears here, and dead trees in our neighbor’s pasture. Please ignore the weeds in the patio: it’s been over 100 degrees every day (around 40 C) and the soil has been too hard.

And, yes, even then, while it was raining, the sun was still trying its best to shine through.

I felt a bit silly, like a little girl, taking pictures of rain, but I could not stop myself. I was so happy for it. Since then I have visited with several friends, and guess what: In almost every family I know, someone was photographing this very rain. HA!

Just had to share that fact with you so you could better understand how much we lacked rain and how universally happier everyone is, these days.

Going off to mow a bit, now. 🙂
