Rain Blowing in the Back Door
The other night as I pulled in the driveway, home from work, I was mentally deciding what I needed to get done first. I had noticed a small benign looking cloud forming in the East, but we weren't suppose to get any storms. When I get home, I always pen up Eddie and Sue, the Chicken Nursing Home residents first. Then I let Boone out in the yard. Since I had drained his pool the day before, getting it rinsed out and filled was top priority, so the big guy could cool off. While I was rinsing the pool, it started to sprinkle. Well, I figured it wasn't going to amount to much, but I decided I better go out near the garage and cover up my rider mower with a tarp, just in case. Afterward, I dashed to the house, as the 'sprinkles' were starting in earnest.
The rain was much needed although unexpected. We got close to 3/4 an inch and have gotten close to another inch over the last few days. The sun was in and out of the clouds making everything glimmer and glisten.....
And just as I had begun to suspect, the Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow is.... hay!
