The kind of non-stop gully-washing rain, that drenched the parched grass and flowers, and gave a respite to the Summer heat.
In some nearby areas, up to ten inches has fallen since midnight last night.
So much rain.
They've canceled the County Fair events this evening....can you imagine ?
I puddle up the neighborhood
I make the postman mad
I wake the worm and spank the frog
Sleeping on his lily pad
And when the tulips in their beds
Nod happily, it's true,
I shake the petals of their hands
And say, How do you dew?
