It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Oh! it’s just rain.

Yes rain, something we have seen very little of over the past couple of years. We in the deep south have been under what the experts call a drought. That doesn’t mean that we have been completely rain free, but instead have had brief forays of raindrops now and then, usually not at my house.

On the plus side the lawn only needs mowed ever couple of weeks or so. On the down side, what few flowers I planted this year are either already dead or wish they were.

Currently the remnants of Fay, a former tropical storm with the moving speed of an ancient tortoise, is making her way through my area. We have had on and off rain since yesterday evening, some of it a bit on the heavy side. Tornadoes have made brief appearances south of us, but thankfully leaving little damage. We won’t be getting the flooding that Florida received, thank goodness, but there will be little flooding in a few areas. Especially as our ground is so unused to being wet.

I had to run an errand this evening after dark in a downpour. I was very thankful that most of the other motorists on the road were going fairly slowly as visibility was far less then ideal.

It is a grand thing to hear something I’ve not heard much of lately, the pitter-patter of raindrops outside my window.

Thus ends Sylvie’s personal weather forcast.

  1. I just thought I’d drop you a line and let you know that we excerpted a little snippet of this blog for our local blog round-up on The project aims to be a gathering spot for all Spartanburg-based blogs, and we’d certainly welcome your input. Your blog, from what little I’ve had time to read, is awesome.
