Don't look now BUT!!! it is raining (well a little bit anyway)

The farmers could do with a drop of rain from the heavens.
This is a photo taken the other weekend when we went on our day trip and the paddocks all the way there looked like this I can even see the gum trees starting to struggle without a drop or two of rain.
Many farmers do not have a lot of stock as they have to buy in food. this is a mother and child I just loved the way they looked at us so out came the camera.
As you can see not much feed on the ground.

It is trying to rain ever so hard the wind is rushing in all directions and the comment on the town streets this morning was not the normal "good morning how are you today" it was "good morning! hope it rains on you!"

This is the photos I took just before going to work and I know I am not good at taking nature photos but I think you can see we could get a cloud burst! right over the top of us......Well we hope so anyway.
We have just heard the fire truck go out because along with rain clouds comes lightning so lets hope that it is not going to be a fire that gets out of control.

This is our Saturday and yours too when it gets to your part of the world.

Your Saturday has probably ended and mine doesn't start for an hour. I hope the lightning didn't start any fires. Raining here a bit too. Not so much today but high winds that can be very alarming.

Hoping you got that much needed rain, NOT the lightning..
I love the greeting about the rain.
How much some of us take for granted.
Have a good wet weekend.

Hi Lee Ann, thanks for visiting my blog. I have enjoyed your posts very much, & love you pics.
I too love to see old houses & wonder who the inhabitants were, & why they abandoned their home.
Love you grandchildren! You are so lucky to have so many!
Still I love our 2 dearly, & count ourselves lucky to have any.

I pray you get all the raindrops you require!!
