These aren’t very interesting pictures and my photo skills leave a lot to be desired here, but I just wanted to capture the WET! You can certainly SEE it, I just wish we had what Emeril calls “smell-a-vision” so you could smell it. It’s that wonderfully earthy scent of growth.
“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Oh — I am ALL about letting it rain! It is raining at our house right now. It threatened all day and I was worried that it had passed us by. It’s a nice, steady rain — the kind that melts slowly into the ground and revives the dry, brittle plants and fills up ponds and puddles for the wildlife to get a much-needed drink.
It’s hard to imagine how we were drenched and flooded last summer and we thought it would never end. This year, we thought the 100+ degree days and the drought would never end.
I guess the one thing we can count on here is extremes. When it’s good, it’s really good. When it’s bad, well…you can fill the rest of that in!
I hope the rest of my blogging friends in Austin are getting a drink — how about it? Where else is it raining in Austin tonight?
