You can see how dry it’s been. The drought may be over, but this one is blooming because of stored water from the January rains. We had a bit of mist the other day, but have had no rain of consequence for many weeks.
It is indeed a treat to see *green* rolling hills and canyons instead of brown ones. I hope we are treated to more rain again next winter. Doubtful there will be any over the summer, although we experienced a brief July thunderstorm the summer we were deciding to move here, almost seven years ago. The locals apologized profusely, as if they had let us down. Compared to a Kansas storm, it was nothing, and we laughed!
