At long last, we got some rain. It's nowhere near enough, and we're still deep in drought, but it was a beautiful sight early this evening when the sky blackened and the drops started to fall, turning into sheets of beautiful rain.
As it happened, we had approximately 30,000 square feet of sod laid out on our new athletic field today. We even obtained a special permit, allowing us to water daily for five weeks. And we'll still have to do that -- but there's no doubt that today's rain will give the grass a strong start. As someone commented, "Gosh, Father, if this is what happens we should have rolled out the sod a month ago!"
So, thanks very much, God... and please send some more.
