We would love rain, rain and more rain.  Two days in the last week, we have had wildfires in the Texas panhandle, burning hundreds of thousands of acres, killing livestock and people. 

We are praying for rain.  Our single digit humidity along with 50 mph winds fueling wildfires are as destructive as are floods.

Come get some of mine....there is only a tiny area of drought left in California (Santa Barbara)....everything else is soaked

Good Lord, Sue- I had no idea .. I didn't even see this in the news- (why?)  I recall you mentioning that last summer was pretty dry in the gardening thread- So sad about the loss of life, all of it- Here is a map: http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx  No idea how accurate it is- I do know that one year we had drought like conditions in this state but no mention of it in the news-

Well I hope you get some rain sooner than later ..

So far, this is all open country, there have been very few homes lost considering the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado are all experiencing wildfires.

I don't know anyone who lives in Oregon who didn't suffer this past winter from depression.  It was terrible and so so so much rain and gray. 

The sun is finally back and everyone feels better!

We had one of the most mild winters I can remember in at least 40 years, and I was the bluest I have ever been.  The spring weather was iffy most weeks and my blues didn't disappear until I could sleep with the window open.

I hope this isn't a new trait of my "getting old".
