We had a glorious storm, about 5-1/2″ rain in our yard, almost as much as all the rain so far this year. About 13″ total. We still need a lot more, but this was a good omen. The ground out in the woods is finally soaked. Don’t know if the chanterelles have given up for the year, but we’ll see.
A couple of rain songs:
I Wish It Would Rain by The Temptations on Grooveshark
Love the Rain by Toots Hibbert on Grooveshark

A little more up here in the foothills of The Sierra. About a foot of rain fell and brought the rivers to life once again.
