But around here, where people have been praying for rain for years, the past five days have been a blessing.
Remember this photo from back in July? Yep, that's a dry creek bed, even though we had just received a little rain and hoped for more.
We went out exploring and here's that same place yesterday. The footbridge touches the opposite side just to the right of the tree.
We haven't been out yet today, so who knows if the bridge is still there? I'll let you know.
Ms. Pearl's Labrador Retriever half has taken over and she's been body surfing down the creek. At first I was worried, but she knows where to get out.
Pearlie wouldn't hold still for a photo. "C'mon, cut the crap! There's water out there!"
