I’ve never lived anywhere where there has been a drought…a truly, significant dust bowl drought. The articles I’ve read say that we are on record for 43 months of drought conditions.
So when it started raining on the Thursday before Memorial Day weekend, we, along with hundreds of thousands of others rejoiced. As it continued through Memorial Day, no-one really missed outdoor picnics or swimming pools…we all realized that finally, there might be an end in sight.
As of today, Monday the 26th of May, we have received 5+ inches!
Rain and the power of nature, is something I will never take for granted again.
