What more can you say?
While we had a short dose of rain a few weeks ago, it did almost nothing for the dry as parchment soil. Hopefully our day long bout of steady rain will soak a little deeper this time. Even more, I hope it bodes the beginning to our Winter here in Southern California. We get almost all of our rain between October and February and a bad Winter can leave us even worse off the next Spring.
We can’t control the weather, but we can revel when it brings us exactly what we want. That said, most everyone else in Los Angeles curses the rain. All they can see are longer commutes, an increase in automobile collisions, and mudslides. I always see if differently. I can almost hear the plants ease a sigh of relief. They don’t have to suffer with the limited sip from the hosepipe, but can drink deep and long, as nature intended.
