Finally some rain!
Like much of the southeast, Charlotte has been experiencing an extreme drought. We’ve been under mandatory water restrictions for some time now, and were recently told that some areas have less than 90 days water supply left. We’ve had less rainfall this year than what Tuscon, Arizona or El Paso, Texas might see in an average year.
So walking to the bus in the rain this morning was a treat, even if it did result in a wet, smelly dog. (We could only find two umbrellas, so Emma and I were on our own!) It seems like a good day to open the windows to the damp air, and catch up on some neglected chores.
