Our life in the foothills of Calaveras County, California. The pond is at the center of everything. In case we should forget, the bullfrogs yell it out all summer long. A noisy place, but home.

Bouncing Baby Storm has Arrived!
I couldn't fall asleep until after midnight last night and got up several times to step through the sliding glass doors to check for rain. Only the barest misty drizzle touched my arms as I held them hopefully up. I cracked the window above the bed open in order to hear the rain that surely was on its way. This morning I woke up at 5:30 and strained my ears to hear raindrops -- nothing. I never woke up during the night, so assumed that it had never rained. Imagine my delight when I checked our rain gauge and discovered that it had rained over half an inch. It finally rained and I slept right through it.
Never mind. It rained! The weather website has added that this is a very slow moving storm -- a good thing. Let the clouds linger and offer every last drop of water to our dry earth.
