Really Wet – Soggy – Morning...

We got almost a third of an inch of rain last night, and more is forecast for today and tomorrow.  This certainly is a very odd “fire season” – but we love it!

The dogs took no notice of all the wetness.  They simply don't care.  The three field spaniels found a spot along the driveway with an irresistable smell – I had a great deal of trouble dragging them away from it.  They'd have been smelling it for hours if I let them.  That was one of those moments when I really wish I could talk with them.  What on earth are you smelling there, guys?

The new roof performed flawlessly, so far as we can tell.  No leaks apparent in the house.  The rain made a gentle sound on the metal roof, but the water gurgling down the downspouts was quite loud (there's a downspout right outside our bedroom window, which was open).
