Blessed rain

Okay, I know the weather is the most boring topic in the world to blog about, but I just took the dog for a spin around the block IN THE RAIN. The glorious rain! Fellow Southerners out there will know exactly why this makes me rejoice. We haven't had a drop of rain here in Chapel Hill since September 14th and our city government has been talking lately about how the town reservoirs will run dry in a matter of a couple of months if we don't get rain. Plants have died by the hundreds, whole trees have died by the dozens in my neighborhood, and even if you're not a gardener, it's the topic on everyone's lips around here.

Yay for rain!

We are also getting our first rain in several weeks. The situation is not as bad as yours, of course, but it's still a relief to see a little moisture out there.

I love the rain. It reminds me of England. I hope you get more of it!

Yes to rain. This drought has been really scary.

Yay! We got lots of rain here last week, but still desperately need more. I personally LOVE rain, so this is never a problem for me!
