Rain and Bush

It rained here today. “So what?” you may ask. Except in the case of those who live in the Atlanta, GA area. They understand drought.

And we are in our second year of much less than normal rainfall in South West Florida. It has not rained in two months. So we needed rain.

May is our driest month, and there was no rainfall in the forecast. Nonetheless I was awakened at 3:45 a.m. today by a huge thunder and lightning storm. I went outside, simply to enjoy the rain.

(I discovered later that just about everyone I met during the day had been awakened by “a blitz” of a thunderstorm)

And rain it did. Heavily for two hours, and then a more gentle soaking rain for another nine.

It will not make much of a dent in our drought, but how good it was to see and feel rain!
