Rain has been falling all day, and will probably fall all night and continue tomorrow. It now looks as though there could be some rain Friday as well, and rain is almost certain on Saturday, but Sunday might be clear. The break won't last long, though, and we'll most likely get soaked again next week. I'm guessing that the weeds will be big and luxuriant next spring, and the lawns will probably need frequent mowing. I'm hoping that the leach field of my septic system survives all this saturation.
So far I'm still enjoying the sound of rain, but I'm not sure how long that will last. At some point it's bound to start driving me crazy if I don't get frequent breaks from it. It isn't going to get cold enough to snow anytime soon, but it would be nice if it did. The silence that comes with snow is one of the delights of winter, and it's been a long time since we've heard it here.
