Welcome rain

If you live around these parts and you have any washing to be done, do it today because it will almost certainly rain tomorrow.

In Britain, another period of rain would be most unwelcome because the country has already suffered from many deluges over the winter. Here though, the winter has been very dry. We had a few weeks of strong winds recently but no rain to speak of for what seems like months now.

The farmers need rain for the crops and we need rain to see us through the long hot summer to come. So, although this may sound strange to those who are reading this blog in Blighty, we look forward to the day or so of rain that is to come as long as it isn’t that mucky stuff that arrives from North Africa!
