It is raining!
I had a lovely sight this morning: my deck was wet! I heard drips coming off the roof, filling a couple of buckets. It was still dark, but the evidence was there :).
It's a light, gentle rain and as much as I would like to get the creeks running and fill the pond and charge the aquifer, this is best for the dry, hard earth, it will soak in, not run off, taking soil with it.
I swear the pines are smiling - so am I, hoping the well is recovering.
More is promised for tomorrow and maybe Thursday.
I put in a request for maybe two sunny days after that to get the pasture grass started, then more light rain the get it growing, after that: the deluge.
Think it will happen? doubt it, but one can ask anyway.
