"Pitter-patter, pitter-patter. What in tarnation is that clatter?! Somethin's fallin' from the sky, but I don't know what, and I don't know why. Oh, it's cousin Rain, come home from a long hiatus. Some folks didn't want to welcome him back, but Momma Nature made us!"
The parched Trout Lake Valley took a much-needed drink this past week after the longest dry spell in memory. While the sun has been briefly blighted by a layer of gray, the rain has helped dampen the fires that have ravaged our forests (and our lungs!).
The dust of a long, hot, and dry summer has been washed away droplet by droplet, and the valley air is once again fresh and sweet. Frogs are suddenly in abundance. If we could only understand their croaking songs, it would surely translate as: "Thank you! Thank you!"
