It's The Wonder Of Nature, Baybee!

I awoke early this morning to the most amazing sound, the sound of water falling on the roof! And listening more closely, I could hear it falling all around the house - on the trees, on the sidewalk, on the street.....Can you believe it?

I think in the old days they had a name for this phenomenon. Rin? Roin? Something like that. I'm just glad that I was lucky enough to experience it this once.

Wish I could send you some of ours. Alpine's yearly average rainfall is 19 inches. We've had over twice that so far, and the monsoon season is just getting under way. I've gone to jogging at 2:00 AM because that's when there is the least rain about. It's ridiculous. Even old timers are scratching their heads. The desert is in magnificent bloom, though.
