Rain, Rain Come our way

I don’t know if you have been living under a rock or not, but a large part of the Midwest is in a severe drought. Here is a local map that shows how extreme it is. We live where the yellow dot is. I think they are saying that the drought started around Memorial Day. It is no exaggeration when I say we have had NO rain. There have been pop up showers within the past month, but none have brought anything more than sprinkles to our house.

That is until last Thursday night. It finally rained. POURING RAIN. It’s the first time I haven’t had to water the flowers in over 2 months!! Forecasters are predicting that the drought will last through October. Not good news.

There are only a couple of good things about having no rain:
No cancelled plans due to the rain
No humidity—it’s just plain hot
No mowing the lawn!

I can’t really think of anything else, can you?
