It is finally raining in Virginia and West Virginia

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker


Yes, that's water on my deck and I think it is falling from the sky.....not sure though since it seems that it has been months since it has rained in our neck of the woods.  It makes you wonder how the trees and plant life survives. You see I live in an area that the professionals are calling an "extreme drought area" this year.

My little garden is still surviving despite the fact that we quit watering it a month ago in fear that our well water may run dry.  In fact, as I write this, I have a pan of squash frying on the stove. 

Of course I don't believe I could survive without running water. It makes me wonder how our ancestors did it.  I suppose if you never had it, you wouldn't miss it. (That's what "they" say anyway).

By the way, who are "they"?  Have you ever thought about that?  We are always saying "that's what they say.  I want to know who "they" are. "They" must be very knowledgeable on a lot of subjects because we are always referring to what "they" say.

If you know who "they" are, will you let me know?  I think I will sign out now and go watch my squash frying and watch the water falling from the sky.  Good Evening!

Sounds like you need to come to Oregon, we have plenty of rain to share! We get it all year long! We had 3 months this year that had at least 24 days out of 30 that it rained.
