Rain on the plains!

KTOK-AM, news-talk station in Oklahoma City, has been playing a PSA about the rain that ends with "Thanks be to God."

Amen. ... Whoa. I just heard something burbling outside my office window.


Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

-- "April Rain Song," by Langston Hughes

Amen! And a happy "SPLASH! SPLASH!" to you!
Happy rain day! Just dropping in to let you kow I'm still reading (through bloglines) but I still cannot load your site to leave a comment near often enough.
Good for the flowers, good for the grass, good for the soul, this light constant rain with ocassional squalls embedded.
My first child's middle name was inspired by this kind of weather.
A drought buster it is not, but thanks for the interlude.
I guess it is a bad sign that the State wide burn ban is still in effect while it is raining?
