Its been a log time since we've had a good rain , its very very dry.
This seems like an annual event.
Its time for rain.
Call me a positive thinker, but I washed out my water collection tank and cleaned the gutters in anticipation of June 1st.

Cal and I were saying the same thing the other day. And we have always observed that it rains on June 1st - it might only be a sprinkle, but it gives us hope.
