At a little after three o'clock this afternoon the sky turned very dark. It looked more like 5:30 than three o'clock. An hour ago it started to gently rain. Big drops, but more like the sprinkle of a shower than rain storm. Either way, IT'S RAINING!
Yes. Here, that IS something to get excited about. The rain washes off all the gray and tan and dirt and makes everything look "new" and green again.
Our first rain of the season - which is actually rather early for us - but it IS RAINING!!!
