Sweet Summer Rain!


Finally!!! Rain, rain, rain...thunderstorms all night!!! We have been sweltering for almost a month with not one raindrop. At this moment, the pounding on the tin roof of my screened porch drowns out the frogs croaking, which is a rare feat this time of year. It is almost 7 a.m., but if you look out the window, it could be the middle of the night....dark, threatening skies...yet, so friendly. I have raised all the windows throughout the house, wishing for the clean breeze to sweep through. This is bliss. This is joy. This is a rainy, Southern day! (Photo from Flicker)

I'm glad you got some rain! We did too, yesterday -- my entryway flooded from the wind forcing the rain under the door (yeah, we need to replace the threshhold lining...)

That is such an awesome pic. We've had rain too. MOstly at night but enough that it's been impossible to mow as the ground is too wet. Might be able to get to it this evening. I hope so because it's a jungle out there.

Hi Marilyn ;o)

A gorgeous photo you show there !
We had some rain after our heat wave spell - and it was bliss ! Infact i stayed out a while and i wasn`t bothered for once about getting a little wet !
