Yes, we finally got rain. Yesterday, LB said she needed more experience riding her new motorcycle and asked if I wanted to go along and ride her mo-ped. We left the house and it was a hot sunny day. I thought that it looked like rain, but that did not deter us from having a great day riding around in the country as well as a city neighborhood. We were about 1 1/2 miles from home and stopped at a stop sign. We could see that the sky had darkened and there was lightening in the distance. Soon after we got back to her house and stored the bikes in their proper places, the bottom busted wide open! The wind was blowing the trees so hard, and the rain was coming down furiously. We just looked at each other with our mouths wide open, and then we expressed what we were both thinking. How happy we were that we had made it back to the house before all of this started. I just said, " Oh thank you Lord, thank you Lord." Not only were we thankful to be out of the rain, but we were also thankful for the much needed rain!
