Rainy Nights

This morning we awoke to clear skies and a cool breeze. So nice after the heat of the past week.

It has rained the last three nights. The first night was a storm accompanied by hail and maybe some sleet. We could hear it clattering on the windows but didn't get out of bed to check it out. But the rain the last two nights has been a nice rain.

This is good. It had become so hot and oppressive that we were fearing the month of May. May still may be hot and dry but this reprieve has been reassuring. Not only reassuring that maybe May will not be so hot but it has given us hope that the rainy season will be a good one. The lakes are down about 30%.

Last year the rainy season....usually from June through September, was very sparse after the middle of July. We need the rain.
