Every evening, I scan the weather forecast on The Enterprise's website and look for that lovely symbol with diagonal lines that symbolizes rain. Every morning, I do it again, hoping that conditions changed and rain clouds are forming on the horizon.
Our yard and the flower beds that have the least shelter from the sun are parched. The hydrangeas that were lush and beautiful weeks ago now are wilted and browning. We water them faithfully, but the sun and wind overpower our efforts. Forecast today? 20% chance of thunderstorms. Of course, a June thunderstorm these days is about 5 minutes of scattered sprinkle. I'll take it.
