Rain

We were blessed by Rain today. Up to 5 inches of rain and more in some places. Still it is not enough to end the drought but I am grateful just the same. The ground is saturated and this will be good for the fruit trees come Spring. The rivers and creeks are full and perhaps there will even be fish in them if we have more rains the rest of the season.

I went for a walk in the rain. I felt happy as childhood memories flooded in. How we always played outside and drenched ourselves in the warm rain. How we watched the flood waters rise until the road is covered and we would see the fish from the overflowing creek squiggling across the road. We caught these little creatures and put them in gallon jars - our makeshift aquarium. We didn't know that the fish do not eat rice so, of course, they died a few days after.
