Finally, rain!

I didn't want to jinx it yesterday, but the drizzle has continued for a day and a half now. Thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster! We sure needed some rain.

The local farms are relieved. I was curious, and happy, to read that the drought wasn't as detrimental to the crops as last summer's wetness was:

"In Millis, while saying the rains were certainly a welcome sight, Laura Tangerini, owner of Tangerini's Spring Street Farm, said dry spells are part of running a farm. She said she prefers this year's dry weather over last year's soaking rains because it has kept diseases and many types of insects in check."

All Hail the Great and Merciful Flying Spaghetti Monster! For he has brought around 0.83 inches of rain to The Edge and will hopefully bring more.

My plants are happy, too.
