rain, glorious rain

I woke at 5 AM this morning to the sound of gentle rain on the skylight in our bathroom.  Then I heard water gurgling down the drain pipes, followed by the sound of rain pattering on the patio tiles.  Beautiful music.  Steady, refreshing, gentle rain fell here in the valley for four hours.  This morning everything looks so glossy and clean, so fresh and bright.  The new roof has passed its first test with flying colors.

Spurred on by the wet and cold I ordered our winter wood ~ half cord of aged almond.  Looking forward to some cozy nights by the fire soon.

hooooooray! Yes,we had 1/2" of rain here in SF and Bill doesn't have to sneak out to water the garden this week. Great about the roof doing its jobs, too.
