Showers of Blessing

There is an old hymn we used to sing with these words in the chorus:
Mercy drops 'round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
That wasn't really about weather, but it is what the weather has been like in our corner of Wyoming--we are grateful for the mercy drops, but this drought-stricken land needs showers, long soaking showers!

Yesterday we got a brief shower; a little more than just mercy drops, but not enough to supply the need. I rejoice in the drops that fall, but wish the parts of the country that are getting too much could share with us!

Just before the rain began yesterday, this is what the sky looked like:

The view to the west.

The view to the south.
