I awoke this morning to a rare a beautiful sound - rain falling. We have not had any significant rain since the 4.5" washout in mid June.

This weekend, as we drove through central Minnesota, I saw corn in non-irrigated fields reaching up to the sky as if it was praying for rain. The usually lush leave were so thin.
I don't have to mow the lawns this week. The grass has not grown at all since last week - and it barely grew the week before that.
I hope this rain will save our local farmers. It will help my little garden too.
