We are almost 14” behind in rain this year and this hour long down-pour will be a start in reducing that deficient. However, it needs to rain almost this hard for a full day or three before the ground gets back to what it needs to sustain the grass and flowers through the reminder of the summer and fall.
Soon Judy and Baylee (not shown) joined me and we just lay back and breathed in the cool fresh air for as long as it lasted. We have had 30 straight days of over 90-degree heat, but with the rain, I doubt we break the 1993 record today.
As soon as it ended, I fixed a ham, onion, jalapeño, and three-cheese omelette, with healthy dashes of Tennessee Sunshine hot sauce! That and a tall glass of milk got us rolling for the day!
Folks, it is good to be retired and to smell life as it gently passes by – come join us!
