rain, rain, rain

The night sky is dark with rain and promise of new chrysanthemums next year. Northern California has been so dry we have been facing imminent water rationing. And suddenly as we enter the end of the end of Winter, this blessed rain.

There are times said Princess Haiku, when one word is enough!

Yes! WNC was so dry - we were in a severe drought and then the rains came, and some snow -- very nice to hear my creek sing loud again...

How I love the rain though tonight it is going to snow, again. Will stay in, make dinner, have a glass or two of gin and a bit of wine as I dine alone. In two days the drink must stop because of the pre op preps. Am dreading 5-8 days in the hospital. As ever be well

I miss rain, something I never thought I would do. It is dry in the Cariboo, precipitation falls as silent Snow.

I miss those soggy, misty, coastal rains...the ones that once put me to sleep, feeling as if all was right in my World.

First a rain dance for the rain, then a gratitude dance to give thanks for rain. May the chrysanthemums bloom gloriously this year!
