rain, sweet rain

The quality of mercy is not strained (I won't put quote marks because I'm not going to look it up and I don't trust my memory!) it droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the plain beneath. It falls on the just and the unjust....Like that.

The rain finally came, around 6 p.m., though it had threatened all day. A hard rain and then a soaking rain, just what we needed.

The 'dry' of Connecticut pales by the 'dry' of California. And the rain of Connecticut is nothing  to speak about compared to the damaging, troubling rains in Texas and Oklahoma.

But it has been dry and then we got the best rain, just like we needed.

God looks out after Connecticut, the bluest of blue states.

Bern things the floods in Texas (and now the mosquito problem--most likely with West Nile disease) are just the beginning of a Biblical 7 Plagues of Egypt on Texas for, well...being Texas and spawning Rick Perry and Ted Cruz and ass-hole laws.

Not bad, I almost wish it were true. But most likely, if God is involved, it's because there are more 'Science Deny-ers' in Texas than Connecticut. I think a large majority of Connecticut citizens believe in evolution and climate change...a much larger percentage than in Texas. Pretty sure of that.

I'll take my chances in bluest of Blue Connecticut rather than redest of Red Texas--for a lot more reasons than the weather.

But the rain tonight was wondrous--the temperature dropped from 72 to 52 in just over an hour. Good sleeping tonight. No need for AC in sight--next week will be cooler than this week here in the Democrat dominated Nutmeg state.

Maybe, just maybe, some things actually turn out as they should, in the grand scheme of things.

Nowhere I'd rather live, unless there is somewhere where the temperature is always, always between 50 and 70.

Probably not.
