Drops of water are falling from the sky.
We've had a couple of rainy days, and we're supposed to have a good chance of rain again on Wednesday night and Thursday. Over the last 48 hours or so, we've had over 4 inches.
The cats have not been nearly as enthusiastic as usual about going outside to play. Skittles slept all day on a window sill, contented enough, but Casper couldn't settle anywhere. Every time he went out to test the weather, he was standing at the storm door a few minutes later, wanting to come inside again.
Dennis spent his rainy day driving around with a young Mennonite couple who are visiting from Pennsylvania. While he was gone, I took all the books out of the biggest bookcase in the house and moved it. I've been wanting to get that done for quite a while.
It was a bit surreal to hear the rain falling outside while listening to the reports of the terrible California fires. As dry as we have been, I would send this rain to Southern California in a heartbeat, if only I could.
