We have been praying for rain here in what’s normally known as “Raincouver”. We’ve been in a drought for some time now, with it being predicted in the weather forecast that there would be no rain til mid August. Yesterday it was announced as everywhere being in Stage 3 water restrictions, which means a while lot of no, don’t do that when it comes to water anything. While it may not have been long lasting, this morning it started to rain. It poured for a bit!
I was downstairs with Evie already having our breakfast, and Jason must have heard it at the same time because all of a sudden there were loud proclamations of “ITS RAINING!!!!” were we ever thankful for the rain. I asked Evie right away if she wanted to go play in the rain so we grabbed her swimsuit and put her into her rain boots and out we went to play, and splash in the puddles. Sadly the major rainfall did not last long, but it was something.
This morning was also a good reminder to do random, spontaneous things, like dance in the rain. These little moments will be remembered by us all. Here’s to having more spontaneous, unplanned fun!
