Oh my goodness, it's raining!
Last night the TV started doing that emergency notice thing, and it said we had dangerous thunderstorms in the area. To which we said "yeah, right." And we were right, of course. There was some pretty spectacular lightning, but only about ten minutes of depressingly light rain; not even enough to stain the concrete. I moved down here at the beginning of July and this was the first rain we've had at all (besides a few drops). Such a bummer.
So imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to a steady, decent rain! And three hours later...IT'S STILL RAINING!
I can only hope that there are others out there as lucky. And thanks to those doing the nekkid turtle dance; it's working!
