Blessed, blessed Rain

I find the title of this blog so funny.........because if anyone had told me ten years ago I would be praying for rain, I would have ordered a psycho test for them. I can remember it raining for 28 days straight when I, my husband, and three children under four years old first moved to Houston. I thought I would lose my mind.............

Well now that I'm living where the average rainfall is 13 inches, that's right 13 inches of rainfall a YEAR - I PRAY for rain............we haven't had any since January and the dust, the heat now, and the poor plants were really sad. BUT it is raining, it is thundering, it is lightning and if someone didn't live in the house across the way, I might run outside naked and dance in it............

Sure doesn't take much to thrill me anymore, does it?

You should see how excited people get here when it rains. Living in the desert we get only a couple of inches a year, so rain is an exciting event.

Gosh, I never thought I would be this way about rain Brenda - they can have 13 inches in a day in Houston (our average ANNUAL rainfall here).......IS it REALLY 120 degrees up there now?
