After weeks of dryness and officially being classified in the “D3 – Drought Extreme” category by the U. S. Drought Monitor web site, the rain we have been missing has finally set in.
Abby and I took Dorothy, our fe facto mother-in-law, to Kingston, Oklahoma yesterday to have lunch with Dorothy’s son Ralph and his significant other Darla. Ralph is very seriously ill with leukemia.
We are all feeling how good it is to finally see the rain.
Deranged my love
I’m deranged down down down
So cruise me babe
cruise me baby
And the rain sets in
It’s the angel-man
I’m deranged…” -David Bowie, I’m Deranged
Lucky you! :-)
Our rain has been forecast every day for the past week or so, but has not yet touched the ground. We’ve only had one minor rainfall since Autumn…
Those are called “rain chimes”? I always thought they were known as “mosquito breeders”.
Mosquito breeders!! That’s funny!
