Last night we had the strangest phenomenon occur here. I went out to feed the boys and something was clearly wrong. What was falling from the sky? I put my hand out. It was liquid. It was clear. I tasted it. It tasted like .... nothing. It was water. We had water falling from the sky!
When I went to bed a few hours later we still had water falling from the sky. I heard an unusual sound. The rain was enough to cause gurgling sounds from my gutters as it made its way down from the roof. A noise I haven't heard since July!
Water drips off of Aspen catkins
We had .43 inches of rain!
We celebrate the small things around here when it comes to moisture. Something we have sorely missed. We are 45 inches behind in snow this year and have had rain fewer times than I can count on both hands, and then it has almost always been measured in hundredths of an inch.
I can't wait to see how our pasture reacts to this moisture!
