A Little Rain must Fall

Fall Color Starting to Appear

I’m sure you all know that saying, “Into every life a little rain must fall.”  It has been a very rainy and chilly couple of days here on my mountain and despite missing the warmth and light of the sun I am quite grateful to see the moisture.

Some of you may recall that last year the week following Labor Day was a bit too exciting for my family and heart-breaking for many of our community.  The Four-Mile Canyon Fire was challenging fire crews to contain it and all this was not helped by dry windy weather.  By the time the fire was fully contained 169 homes and 6000 acres of land had been burned.

So the rain is welcome, despite heralding the end of summer, as it decreases the likelihood of another wildfire any time soon. Proof that every cloud has a silver lining.
