Woke up this morning and discovered that Mud Routes were posted for Scott and Wichita Counties. I went out and checked the rain guage. BIG puddles of water were everywhere. I found out that over the past 24 hours, we've received 2 inches of rain! THANK YOU, LORD!!! Every drop was needed here. Already the grass, leaves, etc are greening up rapidly. It is still partly cloudy (or partly sunny) outside. Maybe more rain is in the forecast. I don't know.
Last week, we spent some time with a couple of my uncles and an aunt. When one uncle and aunt were driving to meet us, they went past more than a few wheat fields in Southwestern Kansas that are already burned up. I hope that those areas received the rain also.
