Mandatory Drippy Shots To Celebrate Rain Event



















Yes, glorious marvelous rain.  I filled buckets...


























...green tubs...
...the garbage bin...
 ...the black tub...
 ...the fountain, which was emptied because of the broken pump.
 That precious water will deep-soak the trees and shrubs, to help them survive our drought.  Each container has a ring of yellow pollen--pine?  Acacia?  Eucalyptus?  Avocado?  A little of all of those, perhaps.

Drippy celebration shots are called for.




Rain isn't just rain here, it's an event.
Happy, happy, happy!

  1. It's wonderful! We've got 2.5 inches so far. I laughed when I found myself referencing "rain events" in a post a week or so ago but it IS descriptive of the importance rain has here. Enjoy your rainy weekend!

  3. The grass is always greener as they say, I can only dream of a climate where rain in winter is special event. Here the winter rain event is slightly different and mass flooding.

    1. The grass is certainly greener where you are! (Literally)

      I read about the flooding, terrible. A few small mud slides here in California, nothing at all compared to what your country has had to endure.

  4. Hooray for rain! We in the PNW have too much, and you have too little. California is like a third world nation when it comes to rain. Glad you got some.

  7. So glad that you've finally gotten some rain! Rain here is a way of life in the winter. The question usually isn't is it raining but rather how hard is it raining? Enjoy your long awaited precipitation!

  8. I'm so glad you got recharged with some rain. Too bad it couldn't fall gently over a period of weeks, but I guess you have no choice other than to take what you get.
