Rain, rain and more rain.

For about the last five weeks it's rained nearly every day, and more rain is predicted for the next five days. Yesterday at about 6 pm we had what can only be described as a cloudburst, the rain came down in a solid sheet with small hail for about 20 minutes.

The ground is sodden and saturated.

The pond just below the cottage has been overflowing for two weeks now.

Every water course is flowing strongly and the rivers are close to bursting their banks.

Best of all everything is a lush green.

Rain is good. TOO MUCH rain is still too much.

Nice to see some green and Rain.
We don't get much of those here in the desert.
Thanks for sharing!
It's finally cooling here.

Hail? Did you say hail? Aren't you coming into summer? We are having snow here.
But you're right, everything certainly is a beautiful green out there, Phillip. Beautiful photos.

A little rain doesn't hurt as long as it runs off and doesn't flood everything. Hail can come anytime the air above is cold. Here in Nor Cal we have had hail all year around. Sometimes we have so much hail at one time you can't tell if it's hail or snow because everything is white, especially this time of year.
