Finally Rain

We finally have some rain here in Colorado- it was so dry that people say we are in a drought again- I believe it. I know it sounds odd to write about the weather, but this is serious. The fire danger is high, so we are thankful for any rain we can get! It reminds me of my grandmother, who used to study the weather like the Bible. She knew when each and every storm was coming in before any of the weathercasters on the radio or TV. She just "knew" what was going to happen before it actually did. She could actually feel it or smell it. Rain was her favorite, just because it is so good for the earth, Mother Earth. No amount of watering is as good as the rain, she always said. Thanks for the weather report, Grandma!
