Rainy Day in Georgia

A Southern Daydreamer is having Outdoor Wednesday Linky love today. I thought I'd join in the fun. Visit her blog to see all the great posts at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/

I am pretty sure it rained the entire day yesterday. I can't remember the last time it rained the entire day! We are drought plagued here in North Georgia. I can't remember the last time it has rained so many days in a row over here. This is a huge blessing & it is supposed to rain every day this week but one.

Only one problem with so much rain!! Bored kids. Braxton decided to stand in the rain for the first time in his life & he was screaming with delight. So of course I ran to get my camera & he stopped just before I could get filming. I thought I'd load the video though because I'm always talking about Braxy and Brandon my two co horts in mischief and it's always fun to watch a cute video.

p.s. It rained so much yesterday that the trees dumped so much "stuff" in our gutters that hubby had to get up on the roof to unclog them and fix our roof. Water was spewing over them like huge waterfalls y'all.

Have a great day!! Thank you for visiting.

my kids (6) and (3) love to stand in the rain. They were afraid of thunder, so I thought if I could teach them to appreciate the positive things about rain (like the wonderful smell of spring and summer showers) they would move past the fear. We'd set up lawn chairs in the garage and listen and watch. One day the older one ventured out, and the rest is history. They live to 'dance in the rain' now!

This was fun to peek into your world...our girls are grown and gone and its fun to see the goofy kid years and hear the laughter.

I LOVE rainy days. Glad you're getting caught back up this week with rain. We've been having so much rain in the last few weeks that we mowed 3 times one week and that was like mowing a wetlands area.

Cute video.. raining again today here in my part of Georgia. Hopefully if it keeps up like this we'll have our watering ban lifted and we can have a green lawn again and not have to reseed over an over each year. Thanks for sharing your video of Brax.
