When observing day to day, week to week, season to season changes in the natural world is built into your life, weather matters. For farmers, naturalists, rangers.
It’s raining today and that’s the biggest news in the north country because we’ve been in a drought for close to two months. My garden brightened–a sigh of joy from the lilies and corn.
We are all very happy. Simple. My neighbors stopped by, smiling. No grumbling today–let our angst over viruses and strange politicians wait until tomorrow. The rain came, finally.
