It's Raining, It's Pouring....

I feel like a kid when the first snowfall of the season arrives.  It's  mixture of jubilation and a dose of adrenaline. It's raining in Phoenix!

For those of you in other climates, you have to realize we have an annual rainfall of 4 inches. You probably get that in a day.  Here, rain is the exception to the day after day of glorious sunshine.

Today it's different. I can put a pot roast in the oven and cozy up with a magazine or good book. The earth is being cleansed. Tomorrow the grass will be greener, the flowers more brilliant and the blue sky more dazzling.

Right now, I better go buy a lottery ticket.  You know it's good luck to have a rainy day in Phoenix!

I love it when the weather's cool and there's a light rain. Perfect for snuggling!
