Rain, Rain, Go Away....

 We're -- what? -- nine days into May, and we've had six inches of rain already this month. That's not an exaggeration; if anything I'm understanding it.  Our lawn is a swamp.  The little pond near our house is as high as I've seen it and the stream that flows out of it is like the freakin' Amazon.  Here in Tennessee we've been in a prolonged drought.  Not anymore.  The drought is over, the deluge has begun.  The sun appeared for about an hour yesterday afternoon, and it might have peeked through the previous morning.  But every day seems to dawn grey and dreary, there always seems to be a rumble of thunder in the distance, and when the sun does manage to burn its way through the cloud cover, the air becomes heavy and hot.  Rainforest air.

The forecast calls for sun on Tuesday, maybe Wednesday, too.  But until then more rain.  And maybe showers by the end of the week....

I grew up in the East, lived in California for several years, and then moved to TN, and even with my upbringing, I found the amount of rain shocking. And that was a normal year. It's just really, really wet here. That said, no this isn't normal.

Yes, I guess I am complaining. Having a bit of a whinge, as my Aussie friends would say.
