I Am So Grateful for Rain!

After months drought, Austin finally gets some rain

After months of debilitating, extraordinary drought, we've finally seen some rain in Austin this week. And true to my statement at the first of the year - I am very grateful and saying so to anyone who will listen, several times a day. Say it with me now, "We are so grateful for rain and would love some more!"
