I'm so grateful it isn't the snow they predicted-we would be under FEET of it right now! It started raining Thursday night and hasn't quit yet. Other places closer to and in the mountains got the snow instead. Here's an article from the local newspaper:
Although rain is always inconvenient for outdoor activities, everyone around here agrees, "we need the moisture." As soon as the sun comes out again, our lawns will be super green, the flowers and tree buds will be busting out and it will really feel like Spring...can't wait!
