We love the rain

Sometime it doesn't rain, at all, for weeks and weeks or even months and months. I'm sure this sounds like heaven for some people but it is torture for us. We have no town water at all and rely completely on rain water, as do the gardens, forests, creeks, rivers etc. With a relatively small house we also have limited roof space to collect the water and limited storage tanks for the liquid gold of life. I'm guessing a lot of people have no idea what this means when the tanks run dry...empty tanks=no drinking water, no washing water, no toilet, no grinds to a holt.

When it does finally rain-We rejoice, shout Hooray, breathe longs sighs of grateful relief and we just want to stand in the wet. I see beauty in reflections, puddles, rainbows, clouds, mud, and love the way it washes everything clean. Balance is returning, well let's hope it is a balance and not a flood!
