Finally, A Steady Rain

After a long, dry July and August, finally we get a day of rain. You can almost feel the Earth sigh with relief as the gentle rain falls all day and gives the area a drink. I walked through the Dykeman Spring Nature Park this morning to see the raindrops on leaves and the mist in the air.
