Let it rain!
For about three years now we've had drought conditions. The summers of 2011 and 2012 were both very dry, with not enough spring rain or winter moisture to make up the deficit. Last summer we did have somewhat of a reprieve and it did almost seem like things might be getting back to normal, but we have not had nearly enough rain to make up for our huge shortfall. In April we had less than two inches and up until this point in May we've had very little. Normal rainfall for May around here is usually between 5 - 7 inches. The past couple of days we have had afternoon showers that have brought us just under an inch and thankfully rain is in the forecast! As badly as we need rain, the weatherman still has the nerve to say it could possibly ruin your outdoor plans, that goes all over me, LET IT RAIN, PLEASE! Part of the problem here is our water situation is getting very serious and we need RAIN! As I am writing this, it just started raining!
