Rain dancing ...

I'm pleading, if you know a rain dance, please start moving those feet and swaying those arms!

There have been no April showers to bring May flowers. There wasn't enough rain in March, February or January to provide a droplet in the rain gauge. So, if you have any relationship with the gods of rain, please start dancing on our behalf.

We are now under water restrictions and the forecast isn't too promising. The global weather extremes have taken their toll on every continent with hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and droughts. We are on the parched end of the spectrum.

I just want to smell the rain and hear it tapping on my window panes.  Alas, my poor umbrella is suffering from dry rot! But, rest assured that I will be out playing in the rain the very first chance I get.
