Saturday with sprinkles

So I did awaken to the first sprinkles at 6:30 a.m. That was great. Had some coffee and that was great to start the day. Breakfast was cheerios and some blueberry yogurt. We managed sprinkles on and off most of the day...mostly off. But about 6:00 the rain started moving up from the south, across the lake. I was visiting my neighbors, so we all jumped up. I folded the chair I was sitting in, that is when I cell phone rang and it was my sister, and told her to hold on a minute, and then I left my neighbors and started running toward my rig.

My sister asked me if I won a lot of money....So I knew it was the rival football game. If I remember right it was 77 to 17 or 55 to 15 or something equally silly. A royal tromping. I told her it sounded like basketball score.

Meanwhile it was raining really hard. Was about a 15 minute rain. Nicely soaked into the ground. No water left out any where.  They promise us lots of rain for the next 3 days. Nothing happening except rig stuff until the wetness stops. So good to see the rain. Hope it does continue for the next 3 or 4 days.
