It is not hard to think of what to be thankful for this week.
It has been months since we have had any rain,
and because of that, the area is/was battling wild fires in the mountains and national parks.
I am thankful for the rain that we received on Tuesday and Wednesday.
A nice soaking rain.
While we are still behind in the rainfall totals for the year,
the showers were timely and helpful in the fire fighting efforts.
I am also thankful that the rains helped to knock down most of the remaining leaves ...
and so today I will rake (or hill billy rake (i.e. mow with a bag).
Bring on winter ... whatever that means in NC 😉
