Finally, some rain




There has been a draught for the past month or so. Usually it rains quite a bit in our fair state, but we haven't received a significant rainfall in over a month. Well, this afternoon it started POURING. I tried to capture the rain as best I could with the camera. It was pouring like this for about an hour and then it stopped just as suddenly as it started. The weather channel said we got about 1/2 an inch. That is very exciting to me because our grass looks like dead stalks despite watering almost daily. Andrew and Chad, how is your grass doing, by the way? The front looks good because it's Kentucky Fescue, but the idiot builder seeded with Rye in the back and it's not a heat-tolerant grass. Sad that I now know such things, I know. We've just decided to deal with it though for now because we're hoping to do some serious landscaping in the back and there's no point in rescuing the grass when it will just be pulled up in the near future for better things.

Not to brag, but our grass is doing great so far! We just seeded another small area where we took out bushes and it is already growing up (I think within about 1 week it was sprouting). I'm afraid we're going to have a drought this summer though. It's like I can feel it in my bones or something. I'll post or send a picture so you can see it. The front is so much better than when you saw it.

I can't wait to see it! I'm sure it's a vast improvement...it would have to be.

yay for rain! i love a good downpour. it's so exciting. also, it washes away all the blood stains on the sidewalk, so that's another bonus.

Alex, I considered posting a picture of Beignet's wound, but I didn't want to gross out the readership. But because you are into guts and gore, I will personally send you some documentation. It really does look much better though. Steph is at the vet with her now having the stitches taken out.
