Waiting for rain ...

We've been promised rain now for the last four days, but, apart from a few drops occasionally, we haven't had any. We've watched in hope as thunder clouds have built to the west of us, then swept majestically past on either side. On Friday it rained in the valley below us - heavily - but not a drop up here on our moutain top.

So now we've used the lawn sprinklers. Even that didn't encourage the rain ...

Ah well, the weather forecast says it "might" rain next Thursday. I'll believe it when I see it. In the meantime people to the south of us have had more than they wanted or needed. At least it will put some more water into the rivers.

  1. Yep, I totally get it. We either get too much rain and it squishes when you walk or not enough and every thing crunches when you walk on it. GOod luck!
