Oh, Thank God

Wednesday, January 29, 2014





Oh Thank God, it's raining.
It's been so very long since California has experienced any precipitation.







The rain brings with it a sense of PEACE as it gently cleanses the earth.







The air smells so FRESH. I LOVE taking in a deep breath of fresh air.







There is nothing like WALKING IN THE RAIN.







And stomping in the mud puddles.







Today I am doing a RAIN DANCE, to celebrate the day.







I will dance in my Bare feet.









Even my CAT is out running around in the rain. She is feeling frisky like a kitten, celebrating as cats will.








Thank God for the RAIN.

    Summer before last we had a drought in Indiana and I'll never forget the feeling of the first time it rained after 4 very dry months. I'd never experienced a drought before and you just kind of start taking the rain for granted. My husband and I were so excited at the first rain drops we went out of the back porch to watch and when it started raining in earnest I went out and danced in the rain. emoticon

    I love the smell after a heavy thunderstorm.
When I'm in the rain forest region with friends, I love the sound of the rain drumming on the corrugated steel roofs, even though it drowns out conversation. It's a peaceful, musical sound!

    What a great attitude about such a "common" (but actually rare, at least in CA this year!) occurrence.

I adore the kitty in the last shot.

Thank you.

    Here in the mid-west we give that rain another name, we call it snow and we would like it to become rain or go away.

    How about if I ship you some of the 100+ inches of snow I've shoveled so far this Winter? I am happy that you got some rain. I've seen another Californian complain about the lack of it. Keep the produce coming! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad you're getting some much needed rain. It's raining and quite cold and damp here in central Fl. today. No sun at all. emoticon But I have lots of lights on inside so it looks bright.

    I would love to share some of the rain that we have had here in Scotland - it has rained solidly for about a month, and we have had nothing but grey skies. I do remind myself of just how lucky we are to have so much water but there are days when it is so depressing.
Delighted that you have got some rain, and I hope it brings green and breathes life back in to your ground.
