“Prayer has been an­swered! Rain poured down this week all over the county. We are blessed. Of course that shut down the gravel hauling, but no one seemed too distraught as it had been powder dry be- fore that.It also shut down any farming/seeding for those of us who are still trying to get that done. Some neighbors did get done before this mar­velous rain. Such a blessing!

Grass is greening up. It is fun to listen to the rain. It’s kind of like a lullaby.

But the neighborhood has not been sleeping!!
