Around 10 years ago (more maybe? senior brain) we had over 150 days without rain, then it sprinkled, it wet the ground and dried up almost instantly. 2 weeks later we got better rain. I'll never forget that dry spell.

Every time now when it rains here where I am I'm grateful. I sometimes hear people complain about it but It's a blessing from God.

We've had quite a few good years since that drought time. I find that when it rains, whether in my home or in my trailer out camping I feel snug and cozy, and it's great in the 4WD to go out for some mud challenges too.

Judgement Day will be interesting.

Hi Urban, these days I prefer the homebody snug and cozy to what I used to do as a teenager, and that was go for rain walks. I had long waist-length hair and it used to curl up in the rain. I caught pneumonia doing stuff like that, so I fetched an umbrella for subsequent trajectories.

One of my first memories was that of living in Indian Head, Maryland, with my mom and dad; dad was in the Navy, and it was raining hard. Mom bought me a pair of clear, plastic rain boots to put over my shoes, with an elastic strap that fastened them to a button. I felt chic when mom and I went for that first walk in them, even as a child.
