Maybe I haven't mentioned it, but it has been approximately 86 days since it has rained here in Sonoma County. It's also been unseasonably cold at night but warm during the afternoons. Lack of moisture was beginning to take it's toll on everything around us. Dry skin to parched plants. Well, today the rain finally arrived! I'm not overly fond of rain, and Sassy thinks it's dreadful. But it's delightful to see and feel ---at least for awhile. It's way overdue.
