Unfortunately, we've had a fairly dry spring out here in the Rockies. Colorado has been plagued with devastating forest fires for weeks. We were even evacuated in one fire a little too close to home. Thank God, the past few days have brought the glorious moisture down from Heaven. The air cools, the pine pollen is knocked from the trees, and the fire danger decreases slightly. The weather forecasters are talking more heat and less rain over the next week. Tonight, I'll sit and enjoy the cool breezes slipping through the house and the rhythmic ping of rain drops on the metal gutters.
