Finally, it’s beginning to rain in the Vancouver area. This is much needed since it’s been so dry over the past couple of months. Too many fires surrounding us that we have had smoke advisories numerous times. I for one am really happy that the rain is here.
I’m happy because I will soon hopefully not need to use my inhaler 4-5 times a day. I’m also happy because my yard has needed a good healthy watering. The trees, bushes and even my lawn (ok, it’s moss) have suffered far too long. Over the course of only a few hours everything is rejuvenating and becoming vibrant again. I can see our plants bouncing back already from the brink of dehydration.
The rain has been welcomed by almost everyone I know. The Fraser Valley has needed this. We need this. But as the days go on, I’m sure the rain will start to make us each a bit more dreary- just like the autumn weather.
So find a loved one, grab a sweater or blanket, enjoy a warm cup of tea and let the summer come to an end.
