It has been raining since about midnight last night.  There is standing water in the yard and garden.  It is the most beautiful sight.  We have had such a dry year.  Everyone is on water restrictions.  Some worse than others because of  zebra muscles in Lake Texoma. 

The animals are not nearly as excited about the rain as their mama.  The manx are giving me dirty looks.  It seems that they think I caused the rain.  (wish I had that super power).  Abby stood by the backdoor to be let out, took a few steps into the yard and got a "forget this" look on her face and came back in. 

Here is hoping this helps fill up our lakes. 


  1. It's going to take so much rain to fill up the lakes! I am really starting to get very worried. Can you imagine not being able to all? Scarey !

  2. that's why I have my rain barrels and I will use grey water if it comes to that. Hoping this drought ends soon.
