Reaching the Saturation Point?

Rest assured I am *not* complaining!  After all, it is officially autumn and that generally signals substantial rainfalls in these parts.  I love the cooler weather, the sound of rain pelting against the house,  and the early sunsets.   I love the chill in the air that sends one back inside to add layers of warmer clothing.  And I love the colors of autumn too!

I felt the change in the weather coming….or, perhaps I merely looked at the calendar!   I find myself suddenly surrounded by magazines with with yellow, orange, and red hues hailing to me from their covers.  There seems to be a saitsfaction of some sort,  reading through the pages and treasuring  ideas gleaned.  I wonder if anyone else suffers from this same affliction ?  I have heard of spring fever and cabin fever after all….

The ground around us has been crying out due to the lack of heavenly rainfall lately. Dust clouds could be seen swirling about with every gust of wind that blew and cracks in the earth were beginning to form from the dry conditions!

No longer, though!  

We have seen rain aplenty today!

And tonight as well!

The above photo was taken while we waited for the kids to shop a bit in the mall.  The Scotties were with us and Murphy could care less about the weather!

At this point,  I wonder if the ground isn’t completely saturated! 

Now, if rain isn’t your cup of tea, think on it this way…..were all this rain *snow*,  we would be BURIED!!!
