Huzzah! It finally rained here yesterday. We had a big, booming, windy thunderstorm in the afternoon. Following that we had about 30-45 minutes of a nice rain. We surely could have used some more, but at least what we had has the grass greening up a little, and I didn't have to water the garden last night.
Here's a picture of my nephew, JJ, along with his SO, Mariell, and their son Brandon. Looks like they're having a great time on vacation. I think I'm jealous.
