after the rain

I keep thinking of last August when it was so dry here that when it finally did rain it felt like a new phenomenon no one had ever experienced.  This spring it seems to rain heavily for half the week.  The tornado sirens are so common I forget they are even on.  Thankfully Memphis has been spared.

I'm so very sad for our neighbors in Alabama.  I can't imagine their grief.  Seeing the pictures of that destruction makes me very grateful for the beauty in my rain drenched intact world.
