We hear of so many supposed rain storms that are approaching our area of parched California, we hardly pay attention now. I guess a good gully washer would be “News” if it were to actually happen but nothing of the sort has happened since fall 2014.

Rain Drenching in Northern California!

flying-beagle
Yesterday afternoon we finally had a drenching of rain in our drought-ridden landscape here in Northern California. There had been the rumble of very unusual thunder, blustery dark clouds, billowing white clouds and occasional HUGE drops of rain. As luck would have it, farmer and I {and the dogs…} were trying to take down the “Blue Whale Pool” for winter at the time. With Sophie, we had lots of extra helping paws!

My hands are feeling better and I’m even planning to pot up a few of these lovelies this weekend! The weather in my neck of the Golden State(California) has been very hot but tonight blessed fog is rolling over the hills and into the valley, cooling down the hills, valleys and us.
