A Good Rain

"A good rain demands celebration.  Water is the most precious substance on earth and yet it falls in abundance...from the sky.  We should catch it in silver bowls and tally every drop.  It should inspire us...to dance in circles, run stomping through puddles, and sing in gratitude."
                 Jerry  Dennis from  It's Raining Frogs and Fishes.

I am writing this and listening to the sump pumps in the basement working hard to keep our basement from flooding.  We have had a lot of rain in the past week.  Roads have been flooded and so have the parks in the floodplains.  Other areas have had worse problems...whole towns flooded.

Ditto my basement. And from that, figured out that the steam carpet cleaner, which I've been planning to set out on the curb ever since I accidentally shorted out the soap dispenser, is just dandy for sucking up water off the floor.
