FIRST RAIN


Everybody put your rain-dancin' shoes on.
Dance hard for some rain in California,
and for the greater Southwest from New Mexico
all the way to Mexico, and beyond.
Dance like seagulls drumming for worms.
KQED News sez: It looks like the Bay Area
will get its first real deluge through the weekend,
with 3-5 inches possible in some regions.
It would be the biggest storm in 14 months,
but will not be enough to end the drought.
We'll take any drops we can get. In the bucket.
Or otherwise. Wish we had cisterns.
And some real rain-dancin' shoes.
