Rain



It rained, finally. We have been in a severe drought. The last time it rained here was back in November. We have been praying and hoping for rain for months. With all the wild fires and the heat, we have been is desperate need of rain. We need it to rain every day for about 3 weeks in order to get caught up. We are in water restrictions and rationing already. The aquifer is low, low, low.

Last Thursday, about 9 a.m. the sky darkened, it was literally pitch black, and the sky opened up and it rained, hailed, thundered, and lightning(is that a word???) for about an hour. It slowed down, and a soft rain fell for the rest of the day.

Coming from someone who loves sunshine, I know how bad we need the rain, but we praise God for what He gave us.
