Hallelujah ~~ Half ...

an inch of rain! And still coming down. More forecast for the next two days.


I love seeing that little cloud icon. It's been much too long for us.

And it's a nice, steady rain, one that woke me up at 4:45, the sound of it on the roof so foreign that it pulled me from a deep sleep.

And of course, this now necessitates the dog-foot-drying line by the back door -- a sight animal owners know well. Luckily, they're pretty good about stopping on the rug and walking back and forth if they are just damp, or sitting down for a foot wipe by Mom if they are really drenched.

I'm so happy to do it this morning!
