Received our first rain in 6 months early today. We got a whopping .47" where my horses are. My first inkling was the melodic sound of rain on big leaf Sycamore leaves, frogs and the wail of sirens. I walked out and saw three SUVs looking like props from a Tom hanks WW2 homage.People looked at me funny, I actually had a raincoat on. Two joggers in what could have been sweats or pajamas huffed by bemused at my preparations.

Thats the stuff tourists drown in during flash floods up in navaho land. I recall rushing outside in Scottsdale to enjoy the 5 second torrential downpours, and Governor Goldwater coming on the radio to calm the populace.

"Governor Goldwater"?????? I think you're confused, all that water from the sky must have gone to your brain. <br><br>Goldwater was a Senator. Perhaps you're thinking of Gov. Goddard (1965-1967)?

As the West Texan said, "I wish it would rain. Not for me; for my boy. Me, I've already seen rain..."
