It rained

The Frog Festival was today. I remember the first one for which we took pictures was 2006. Jilda wore a leather jacket that morning and before we took many pictures, we found a booth brewing coffee to warm our hands and souls.

Today it was 97 when we left at noon. My shirt felt as if I had showered fully clothed.

Once in the Outback, we jacked the thermostat down and put the fan setting on hurricane.

By the time we pulled into the driveway, I had ice crystals in my beard.

The weatherman had promised that we had a chance of rain this evening. Jilda started doing her magic rain spell and continued all afternoon.

Just after I sat down to write, she called me from the kitchen and said come look!

When I walked outside, a slow drizzling rain was falling. We both stood out there, closed our eyes and looked into the sky. We both uttered a silent thank you.


  1. Halleluiah!!!
    Hugs, Julia

  2. I;m glad you finally got some rain. Now for slightly cooler temperatures...

  3. Enjoyed the time at your house today. glad to hear the rain wasn't just a wish. Over 30 days here methinks but they say ours will come today or tomorrow. Now you give hope.

  5. Hurrah! Great post, which I just read aloud to Norma.
