Rain At Last

A Soaking Rain Event is predicted for this weekend. That is meteorological argot for, "Yes, it is finally going to rain, yes, the drought we've been having will be slaked, and yes, there really are going to be April showers, and May flowers."

Thank goodness. The streams and ponds and lakes and rivers in this part of the world (Eastern New York/Western New England) are unbelievably low for this time of the year. Most gardens (and dirt roads) are dust. It's been too warm,and there hasn't been a significant rain since early March.

And then there's this (skip the ad). A sound we haven't heard in a while, and will be delighted to hear later today.
