"Could It Be?"

When we got up today, the sky was grey, even dark grey in some sections.  It looked like rain.  Of course,  rain clouds have flirted with us frequently this year, only to scamper away about late afternoon without leaving even a drop or rain.  So even though it looked like rain, we weren't expecting much.

I had an errand mid-afternoon near the very most southwest corner of Austin.  As we live at the very most northwest corner of Austin, I had to drive about 17 miles from my house to my destination. 

When I was about halfway there, it started to rain!!!!  Really!  Drips from the sky!  It was lovely!   The rain came down nice and steady for about an hour or so. I had to turn on the wipers and everything!   Oh Yay!  "Could It Be?"  Could we finally be getting a break from this long dry spell? If we could have a nice long, slow steady rain for the next few days, it would definitely help our poor drought-stricken area. 

When I got home, quite a bit later, I asked how much rain we had gotten at home.  Mikey's answer?  "I don't think it rained here at all!"

Ohhhhh, Drat!!  That's just not fair!


  1. I know the feeling. My friend Curley lives about 11 miles out in the country to the southeast. Many times it's pouring here, they don't get a drop or vice-versa!
    But for you I am "wishin' and hopin'" for rain to end your long hot dry summer.

  2. I wish I could send you our rain. But since I can't I will pray you get some soon!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. It's really nice knowing what you think!! Besides, comments keep me from feeling like I'm here all by myself!! :)
