Rain

There is Rain. Not the gentle pattering of drops upon a parched land… No. This isn’t California, we don’t need to celebrate, or bemoan. No wildfires here this year, no mudslides ever, we don’t have enough “downhill” to get gravity behind the dirt. Then again, this is rain. The kind of quarter sized drops and a 2 inches an hour rate that makes for a soggy mood, a saturated land, flooded streets, and fire stations providing sand bags. That being said, none are panicking. None are looting. None are blaming the government, the townships or anyone other than mother nature.  No blame, no panic, nope. It is the natural cycle. We deal with it. We just get on with the slogging along. It will be hot and dry again soon enough.
