Free water needed ...

Yesterday, I actually heard the weather man say that today's weather would be: roast, burn, and sizzle. He thought he was being, ah, amusing.

The Herald promises that we will experience smoke and heat, today. Even our car is participating in the promise. There was ash all over it from the 'Glades fires, this morning, when we got back into it while on a brief outing.

Do you think being smoked and heated will extend our shelf life? Think beef jerky or pemmican.

Enough, already. We need some of that free water. No, not tears. Rain, rain, I tell you ...

Addendum: Ask and it shall be added unto you.

We had a minimal shower early this afternoon. Then about two hours later, a goodly rain. It is still dripping from the trees, well bushes, and the back patio still shows sprinkles jumping into little puddles. Hallelujah.


Take that, weatherpeople!

Answered prayer!

'Course, you could have asked for a downpour right smack-dab over the fire...

I was being selfish and only thinking about our own grass. Silly me.

When the grass gets crunchy, you know it's in trouble. Experience speakin' here.
