Man, this cloudy streak of day is getting me down. I need to move to Arizona or something.

This is the summer monsoon in Arizona--they've gotten a hell of a lot more rain than we have. It's been cooler, too.

Unfortunately it came down so quickly and heavily that a lot of it didn't sink into the ground and ran off instead.

Is it too soon to complain that I might actually have to mow my lawn?

If the rain comes they run and hide their heads. They might as well be dead. If the rain comes, if the rain comes.

Are you saying that Obama made a promise while running for office that he knew he was totally powerless to actually keep once he was in office?

A squirrel and rabbit came over to the water dish after the rain. They had a sip and then rolled around in the wet grass and preened themselves! It was like watching little kids play in the rain.

Even we are getting some in northern Green County. It's the first measurable rain since May. Maybe our parched newly hayed fields will live on.
Thanks all for dancing.

Wow... kind of inspirational. I don't believe I've ever lived a month and a half with no rain and apparently most people are in the same boat. Neighbors up and down the street are standing out in the rain just kind of soaking it in, and not just the kids.

...and my recent belief that I can just leave everything sitting out unprotected comes to an end.

I'm okay with that.

I'm only happy when it rains.
