Here in FL we have had a three-year drought and yesterday we had some mighty impressive thunderstorms! We expect more rain today and hopefully for the next few days. Although the cloudy, dark skies aren't especially pleasing, the rain is God's blessing. How are my snow-bound friends doing? Has Spring yet sprung? Miss seeing the forsythias blooming.

I have had some rain here in VA.  I whine about the rain at times, but it is a good thing overall.  It does seem tiresome when it rains every day.  But we have been behind in water, so the next few days will help.  The flowers & trees love it.

No rain here.  We have a nice sunny day with a beautiful blue sky.  Too bad the temperature isn't supposed to go above freezing and we are going to get snow tomorrow.

We just finished with a week or so of rain here in the San Francisco Bay Area.  There is lots of snow in the Sierra, so the Governor proclaimed the end of the drought.  No water rationing this summer. HOORAY!!  We have a forcast of a few nice days....maybe up into the high 70's and maybe even an 80?

Gee Barbara, I am so jealous!  In northern Illinois we have had more than our fair share of snow followed by rain, followed by more snow.  No drought here!  Today wasn't too bad, sunny and about 40.

My poor sump pump is still running alot since the ground is still saturated.  But hopefully soon we'll all have nice weather and can actually enjoy spring.

Hang in there Mary. The rainbows are just around the corner. We can always count on the weather changing. I wish you sunshine and blue birds. Smile

Mary Ann,
Rain is good. Brings flowers and rainbows, but hail is another story! I hope it wasn't too bad.

Sorry that you are still getting snow! The sunshine and warm weather is just around the corner. I do love the snow when it sparkles in the sun, but I am sure that you feel it is enough for this year. At least you don't have a water shortage. Keep your sunny side up!Cool

Spring is hiding for now. Look at the beauty of the snow falling and the sunshine glistening. It is a gift from God and you will have sunny days ahead. I hope that you are retired and can just enjoy the gift.

We are getting more rain today, although some of their predictions have not come true. We are also getting severe storm warnings of hail, tornadoes etc. I guess it is time for the southern part of the US to get its share of bad weather. The rain we want, but I guess you need to get the bad with the good. Batten down the hatches!!!Undecided
