And The Rain Came Tumbling Down

It started raining late last night and didn't let up until midday. It's rained so much I keep humming the kids song "... and the rain came a'tumblin' down." Our area has been suffering from a miniature drought since about 1993. Even though it's a lot at one time and now the dirt roads are messy, the rain is very welcome. Maybe we can ride in a day or two ... or three.





The rain gauge is not exactly accurate. I estimate we actually received a little over 5 inches.

Wow.

I gotta go check all the ditches too. We have needed more rain so badly!



I hope everyone is having a blessed Sunday too.

"and the rain came down, and the streams came, and the winds blew and fell upon that house, and it did not fall, for it had been founded upon the rock."  [Matthew 7:25]

"then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil." [Deuteronomy 11:14]

We got a little rain here in SW MS, but nothing like you got. You have a nice looking yard Sparky. I live in a camper across from lake Lincoln out of the small town of Wesson, MS. Rented out my house in Brookhaven after my wife passed---just couldn't handle staying there anymore. Too many memories you know.
