Where we live we have been in a bit of a serious drought, the US Department of Agriculture has actually declared 85 of our 100 counties drought-related disaster areas. It is so bad we would need two feet of rain just to get us back to where we need to be for this time of year!

This is a local lake, the picture does not really do it justice but that little body of water in the middle is actually the middle of the lake. All that dry ground you see is usually deep under water!
Remember THIS post? That was the last time it rained, over three weeks ago. Fortunately yesterday, we got some heavy rain.....

On the driveway the rain quickly started creating puddles, we got about two inches in all.
