Rain At Last

It's finally raining today in Southeastern Wisconsin after a full month of all but dry skies.  In those parched 30 days, we had just about 1/4" of rain.

Having spent my entire life in America's Dairyland, I've seen other dry years and the havoc they wreak on life of all kinds.

With normal amounts of precipitation, Wisconsin is a lush and almost tropical paradise during the warm months of May, June, July, August, September, and often even October.  Things start cooling down in November.

Water falling from the sky is a deceptively simple's best not to take it for granted or to complain about recreational activities ruined by unexpected showers.

I'm happy for every drop.
