Warning: I'll be doing more weather ranting in the future because it works!
I awoke this morning to a very strange, but kind of familiar, sound. My groggy mind couldn't place it at first. It was THUNDER! As I blinked the sleep from my eyes I recognized the flashes of LIGHTNING! By the time I leaped from bed I could hear the sound of blessed rain.
That was hours ago and it is still raining. Ah.... This rain is so welcome that I don't even mind that the electricity keeps blinking.
For those of us living beyond the sidewalks, Mother Nature somewhat rules our life. At For Love of a Dog, we live in the country, garden organically and raise much of our own food supply. Weather is our partner, though sometimes we have a hard time getting along. Today he/she is working to our benefit and we are thrilled!
