|Backyard view from past rains|
I keep thinking of the line from this song, though the song is all about something else, from back in 1967 by the Temptations: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xM7BRP7uzFk I Wish It Would Rain and boy, do I ever wish it would rain!
There are some clouds out there but no chance of rain. The 10-day forecast on the weather channel online gives us no more than a 20% chance of rain on one day during that entire time...this is NOT looking good. It will make the summer fire season worse, and may reach the point of water restrictions if the northern part of the state doesn't get its share of rain and snow either, and so far, those points are also well below normal.
Can I move back to the wet land yet...no, and Marty has a 7-week class he's starting here tomorrow for a new (near minimum-wage) 'career'. I don't think this is his best choice but he's the one that has the final word on his career, so I do my best to accept his decision, smile and bite my tongue. On the upside of this, I'll have some 'just me' time, except that Nick is still on Christmas vacation until the 13th.
Praying for rain!
