Now I know some of you are having so much snow you probably don't want to hear about any more wet stuff, but in our area we're in a five year drought. Our combined lakes are at roughly 20 percent capacity. We're limited to how much water we're allowed to use a month, and if we don't get rain soon, I don't know what the city will do.
Yesterday, the most beautiful rain fell. I mean lots and lots of rain. Enough to flood some of the streets and leave puddles in my driveway. I just stood at the window and watched the rain come down. I don't know the final total, but it was between three and four inches I think. Could be wrong.
I haven't been down to our stock pond to see how much it has now, but my son said earlier yesterday it was half full and the rain was still pouring down. Tomorrow, I hope to check it. The ponds been dry for nearly five years. No more fish or turtles, dragonflies or tadpoles. Hopefully, we'll see those again. Just a few more rains like yesterday.
I took this picture through the window which was really wet, but if you look closely to the right you'll see three little birds lined up on a tree branch. They were on the side away from the direction of the rain. Another bird clung to the window screen to keep dry.
After the Rain.
Birds, rain, a beautiful sunset. A good weekend.
