Rain, o magic rain

We had a bit of a cloudburst this morning that filled the water barrel—almost filled it, actually.

The day was rain-free, although often overcast, until late afternoon when we had off-and-on pitter-patter, and right now it’s sprinkling again. That pattern made doing yard work difficult, although the plants are MUCH happier. I’ll bet the grass won’t be crunchy tomorrow (which is an improvement).
