It's wet on Dogwood Lane and we are so grateful.
Glorious rain falling steadily, soaking into the thirsty earth. The first rain in six months! Those of you living in drought can appreciate how glad we are to hear the trickle of water in our gutters. That's what the weather is like here in the Northern California Sierra Foothills, six months of heat followed by six months of wet. If we're lucky. If the planets align. If, like today the seasons arrive on schedule.
River has never seen rain before, her short life has been measured in sunny days. She doesn't like it much. It falls on her big ears and tickles and drips. She'll have to get used to it. Hopefully it will be around for quite a while. Just when I think I can't stand another rainy day there will come the sun and our six months of hot. If...
Until next time,
