    It's raining!

    I know most of you won't find this very exciting, but we are finally getting rain! We've had less than 1 inch of rain total ALL YEAR! We've been in a drought and as usual forrest fires are running rampant in Arizona. I don't know if other parts of the state are going to get this rain, but I sure hope that they do! I went outside and enjoyed it for a little while, now I have my blinds open so I can enjoy watching the rain fall.

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    It's raining here, too.

    We had a pretty nasty fire close by and they're hoping this kills it.

    I'm glad you are getting some rain and even getting to enjoy it. I love opening up the curtains and watching the rain. I always find it kind of relaxing.

    I hope you guys get all the rain that you need!

    That's great you got some rain! Hopefully the fires will stop now.

    Where is Tucson? My brother lives in Pheonix, Arizona, and I talked to him today. He didn't mention it was raining, there. You all need it!

    I hope that helps with the fires Laura, I don't know how you can handle the Arizona heat. We are in the beginning of our first heat wave and I hate it. It is so draining. All I want to do is pick up and head for the ocean and go camping but too many other junk going on right now.

    You can keep the rain for now. We had our share this past winter in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today is the first day of summer and we're having a heat wave and I'm lovin' it!

    Of course, in San Francisco, anything over 70 qualifies as a heat wave

    Yes it is helping with the fires which is good since there wasn't rain after the fires that happened in Tuscon that is when my brother was living there. I think the ones up North are taking care of from the rain up there but the middle and south are way hot at this moment right now in my area its 105degrees Farenheight

    Oh, Laura, enjoy! I love the rain, but I bet right now you're treasuring it even more than I! How do the furry ones feel about it? Anyone freaked out because of the "weird noise"?

    I would HATE to go that long without getting rain. The rain is sooo relaxing...

    but at the same time you guys don't have the humidity we have with can make this summer heat almost unbearable!!!

    Enjoy your rain!! Hope you get more!
