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."
