Be Careful What You Wish For.......

Monday, June 02, 2014

Yesterday morning, on our way to our Grand-daughter's Birthday party, my DH mentioned that he really hoped we would get a substantial rain that afternoon, as it has been very dry in our area...........

Well..........about 3PM, the Heavens opened and by early this morning, we had received over 3" of rain!!!!! We live on top of a hill and when I looked out our large front window, it looked like we were living next to a river. It was going down our front lawn and onto the driveway in a torrent!!!!! It rained off and on all morning and by noon the sun was out. I thought it would be a good time to do some weeding while the soil was moist, but I was quickly driven out by the mosquitos which seem to explode in tremendous volumes after a rain and every one of them is ravenous!!!

While seeking refuge from the mosquitos in our garage, I told my husband that the next time he wishes for rain, he has to be much more specific as to the amount.
