We got over an inch of rain tonight! WHOOPEE! Shortly after I finished 2 hours of watering flowers and vegetables it started raining and the cloud sat over us for well over an hour. We really need much more but I am so thankful and hope everyone in TN gets rain over the weekend.

Southern Antioch got just enough rain to make the asphalt steam for a couple minutes before everything was dry and humid... <shrug> Looks like June 12th is our best change of rain again...

And still no baby, lol.

According to neighbors, we got a half inch on Friday and another half yesterday. Everything has really greened up! Now Doug has to mow for the first time in about a month.

We had a light shower both Thursday and Friday afternoons. Then Saturday, from about 4:00 til about 5:30 or so it reained steady. Not hard, but steady.

I just sat on the porch and listened to the world take a nice deep drink.

Sadly, it's not enough, but I too am thankful for what The Lord gave me.

We got two 20 minutes showers on June 3 between Knox-Oak Ridge and one very short shower last night June 5 for about 5 minutes. Still out at 6:00 am watering beans and okra. But, hey every little bit help and maybe more on the way tomorrow! Lets hope.

Rain?
Hypothetical.
It doesn't count if the cat sleeping outdoors on the patio chair doesn't wake up and seek shelter.
