ITS RAINING AT MY HOUSE!.....

Did y'all hear me? It's been raining at my house since some time last night. Not hard, just that wonderful, soft, slow drizzle that seeps into the ground and refreshes and refurbishes every plant around.

Heavenly!

That Hurricane Dolly is the reason. She is quite a way off from us, but the bands will hit us good with rain. Most likely, we will not have the damaging winds, or the storm surge to contend with, and I don't expect any damage, unless from a tornado that might be spawned by the hurricane. I don't really expect that either, but it could happen.

I am thankful for the rain, and I pray that those in the path of the storm are safe.

I am glad that you are getting a good soaking rain, and hope all is well with those in the path of this storm.

That's great Janie. I hope everyone in the path of that storm is safe. We are getting rain right now too! I am so excited, things were starting to look kind of bleak. I water my new plantings from the rainbarrels and the really needy plants like the veggies but everything else has to fend for itself.
