It's Raining, It's Pouring, dar is dancing :-))

Yay we finally have broken the over the month without rain period! We had us a nice gully washer today we had 2 inches come down in 30 minutes. I knew when it blew it was going to be a good one. It was, totally with terrifing lightening! It hit something really close will have to look for that damage tomorrow. The grass is actually green looking again. YeeHaw! Would have loved it to have lasted all night, but hey so happy for what we did get. It even smells better outside!
Lovely puddles in the yard
all the dead grass has now was into the mole hole carport...but that is totally okay by me :-)

Happy rainy day, Dar! There's nothing like a good storm; especially when it is overdue!

blognut said...

And HEY! I'm totally first! Where's Michel? Do you think she's drunk again? Or is she writing up another post to bitch about how hot it is in Sudan? :)

Hit 40 said...

For blognut - It is 5 am in Sudan and 88 degrees :-) Poor Michel is sleeping and dreaming about US cheesecake.

Darsden - I am so excited that it rained for you. I had been wondering where your yard photos went. We have our bumper crop of perennials out right now in Ohio. I hope you get even more rain this week.

First time I ever heard a woman excited about getting 2 inches in thirty minutes!!! LMFAO!

darsden said...

blognut-yes it is wonderful...congrats on being first :-))

Hit40-LOL you really do stalk her...yes it has been very refreshing!

otin-doesn't take a southern woman much to be happy now child you should know that! That was an excellent response though!!!

I have Sudan's time and temperature bookmarked. I am just fascinated about her all the way in Africa. I think/pray about her safety almost every day.

Looks like a chunk floater for sure, not quite enough to be called a toad strangler though. That takes 4 or 5 inches in a half hour. I can't believe I'm saying this after all the bitching I did this spring about growing webs between my toes, but I'd sure like to get some rain to break the heat. When you said something about getting 2 inches... made me think about Ron the Roofer.... from way back when I was a wild child. He thought he was great. I sure wasn't a size queen back in the day, but those little dicks can poke you to damn death.

I learned my lesson from that experience though. Made me realize what was really important to my happiness... and it wasn't 2 inchers.

We've had so much rain and it's back tomorrow AND our temps are in the 60's-70's for the week. What the hell is going on? I'll be dropping my daughter off at camp on Wednesday with zillions of layers of clothes just to make sure she doesn't freeze. And, oh, yeah, she has CIRCULATORY issues. So, dammit, Michigan climate, warm up a bit!

Chagall said...

Whoa! Rain! It is always something that we hope for especially when the landscape (grass) started to become yellow. Hihihi!

Pastor Sharon said...

OMGosh. . . Darsden, I am loving that you got all that rain. . . however, I have tears rolling down my face about Helen's (REddirt Woman's) wilder days!
Is she not hilarious or what?

Joanie M said...

I have a little something for you on my blog!

Becky said...

Yay!
We haven't seen a drop in over a week.
It's either feast or famine around here.

Tabitha@ichoosebliss said...

It's about time! Yay!!
Counting down the days before I head that way!!

Reddirt Woman said...

Who or what is TAPS? You forget when you leave comments like that you are dealing with a complete techno-idiot... Enlighten me, please.

Gaston Studio said...

Know you're happy about the rain, not to mention your yard, trees, flowers, etc. What the heck is a mole hole carpet?

darsden said...

Jane-you late comer you..the mole hole is where I live...LOL I will have to send you some of my early post explaining it. It is a shed I live in ...in the back yard of my folks. I keep it dark and cold...only come out every blue moon...lol

Chagall-way pass just yellow in some parts..that would be all the dead grass body parts floating into the mole hole garage!

Pastor Sharon-yes, the rain was wonderful and ready for more any time God would like to share it with me. YES, Helen has some stories now...make ya blush ;-)

Joanie-how sweet of you and thankyou very much. You and John are in my prayers honey.

Becky-it was a month for us and we don't have a garden so I can imagine how you are feeling after just a week.

Tabitha-I know I think I am as excited about you going home...than maybe you...LOL I know how excited you must be. I really hope we are able to get together...but I do not want to take away from your family time...that is so important I know. But will be all so happy to meet with you if we can...at least for an hour or maybe a lil longer...won't keep you too long..LOL

Michel said...

darsden said...

Michel-lol guess now you going to try to tell me it never rains in the desert!! Sure it does it is just in forms of lil debbies :-))
