As a native Arizonan who grew up in the desert with way too little water, and as a northern California who has seen too many years of drought, I'm grateful for the abundance of rain we've had this year, something like 190% of what we expect in normal, non-drought years.
Breaking the drought is good and I'm thankful! I can also appreciate that the folks along the Mississippi have real reasons to worry about more rain, whereas mine are miniscule by comparison.
With all of that said, let it be known that after three straight months with no more than a handful of non-rainy days, I am ready to see the sun again. I don't want the rain to go away -- not ever! -- but I could appreciate a little break.
Thanks, rain! Now can you bless someone else for a little while? Please?
