Finally!

Hallelujah!!!

We received a decent rain shower!

Not great….Less than 1/2 inch,but I’ll take it.

…..Actually,these days I’ll take any rain.Just so long as I don’t have to water…..

Everything in the garden is so happy!

Hallelujahs here, Chris. It rained for the first time in weeks. Big lightning storm and then a good rain. I went outside to work in the garden afterwards and it was a sauna! Did you get the second wave that came through just after dark? We ended up with a solid 1/2" and the earth is happy this morning dripping with the afterglow. Let's hope it is a pattern.

No rain in the desert. You can probably see my shade of green all the way there in Florida! Sorry, I drooled on your most beautiful flowers. **kisses** Deb

It raind here over the weekend during late afternoon. But now after the week started. Those 40%, 50% prediction keeps giving me the hope, but often missed my garden. I guess I have to rely on my hand-watering or the sprinkle system.

Susan-our rain has been very minimal.I wouldn't mind if we got a little bit each day,but it has been weeks apart.Grrr...

Meems-I could see it headed your way,and I thought how lucky you were.I think you got more than us.What a difference a few miles makes.Right?

Deb-I feel like this has become a desert!

Ami-I think S. Florida has gotten more rain than us in W.Central Florida.How lucky you are!
