68 Inches

I woke up with a hint of a spark in my soul and that's very, very good.  What woke me up was something I am completely unaccustomed to.  It was sunlight coming through a window directly into my eyes.  It was glorious.  I couldn't figure out why everything seemed so dull, so dreary, so full of drudgery.  Now I know.  And now I know that it's coming to an end.  I feel as though I'm emerging from a fog.  A long, wet, dreary, grey fog.

We've had 68 inches of rain since mid-October.  SIXTY-EIGHT!  And now, all of a sudden, we have sunshine and temperatures in the 80's. It's glorious.  It's warm.  It's sunny.  The sky is blue.  You can SEE the sky!  It's still soggy around here but at least we're finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.  We still have rainy days ahead, but now they'll be interspersed with sunny days and warmer temperatures.  Did I mention we've had 68 inches of rain since mid-October?  :o)

Not only have we had a lot of rain this year, we had about 5 or 6 inches of snow in about 5 hours just a week or two ago.  Phenomenal.  Really.  Bizarre and phenomenal.

But that's ok, because springtime appears to finally be upon us.  The spark has been re-ignited.
