Rain, Sweet Rain
I actually can stand the rain. I awoke to rain yesterday morning, and it rained all day and all last night. And it's still raining. It sounds wonderful, smells delicious, and feels cool and refreshing. We desperately needed it, too. We've been in a drought here all summer. There's some kind of point system for charting drought conditions, and last week we were pegged as only 100 points below desert status. That's pretty scary for the middle of Virginia.
