Just Can't Be Satisfied



It’s dry.  It’s parched.  The lakes are low.  No water flows.  The Earth cries out for rain.

Thank God the “giver of life” is finally here.  The skies hang low, we’re drenched with tears.

They flow and flow, day after day, steady on without cease.  The creeks high, the streets flooded.  Rain... please go away!

    1. I anguished over this post because I know how bad a drought we are in. In all reality, we could use rain like this about once a week.

  2. I've been enjoying this rain. And you are right, one day like this, once a week - preferrably during the work week, of course - would be perfect.

    It could be a lot worse...one of my friends in Wisconsin expects up to a foot of snow. She said that when she gets a blizzard in May, she expects it from Dairy Queen.

    1. HA! That's the only kind of blizzard I care for, too.

  3. As in all things, I guess we're forever looking for Goldilocks conditions. Not too little, not too much... but just the optimal amount. And I suspect the only place we're ever gonna find them is in the fairy tale.

  5. I'm guessing you are in the midwest. Don't forget to curse the snow.

  6. Ah, one extreme or the other. We are getting rain and rain and rain here...and the occasional freezing rain. :o) Gotta love it!

  7. T’was ever thus. We never want what we have.

    I’m sorry you can’t find your former friends. A private investigator? Of course they’re expensive. There must be civil servants who”d help you find somebody for a much smaller fee.

  9. Nicely done!
    The dumbass weather people here in my section of South Carolina constantly declare their joy in sunny weather, even when we are in a drought. Yeah, it can rain too much causing all sort of floods and other bad ju-ju but Mama Nature has to take care of business.

    Maybe I should just move to Seattle.

  10. Maybe more is on the way because it's been dumping like crazy in TN. Flood warnings abound. Unless it swings to the NE of course.
