RAin Go Away Little Johnny Wants to play

I was so in hopes we would see sunshine today, but we had more rain, plus the humidity was high. We have had several roads closed due to flooding . They closed one of the parks to camping due to high water. My heart goes out to all of those who lost people during the Arkansas flood.
How many of you remember the poem Rain, rain go away little Johnny wants to come out and play. All of the rain we have got makes me think of that nursery rhyme.
Oklahoma City really got hit a lot worse then us today with the rain. We are under another severe storm watch tonight until the wee hours of the morning.
I just don't want it raining when I have to make the drive tomorrow to the city. I will decide whether I will drive the interstate or not. I may have to because of the flooding and road closing in our area's.
I have to find time to find out how my oldest grandson's riding lesson went. His horse is having a little training, also. He says his horse is on a Jenny Craig diet because he is so fat. It is to be expected not being rode all winter. This is his second year of riding lessons. She doesn't take them to teach until they are 8 years old. At the end of summer, she will have an exhibition where the kids get to show what they have learned. I will be anxious to see how Jake and Charley get along after both being schooled as the saying goes.
It is late tonight and I need to close for this post. Have a wonderful week.

Hi Shirley:
I'd actually love to have some of your rain, please. We really need it. It's gets to rumbling and thundering, but alas, we don't get the precious water. I'm sorry you're getting too much. I'll hope you get the sunshine and we take your clouds for a while. Really...I'm happy to share. Have a great week, sweetie!
xoxo Donna

No rain for me here! We did have a lot of wind last night from a nearby storm. And wouldn't you know it was trash day! So the recycling bin blew over. But our sweet recycling guy picked it up! There are still nice people in the world! Hope you see sunshine soon!! ;)

Hi sweetness. I'll take some of your rain this way too. Hot and dried up around these parts. Weird how the world is in utter climate chaos.
Hugs to you my friend!

Hi Shirley,

We keep hoping for rain, they keep promising it, but it goes below us.

Hi Shirley,
I so hope your rain comes to an end and the flooding stops. My goodness you've had lots of bad weather this season.
We need rain so bad here with our high temps drying everything out.
I wish you could send some our way.
No bad storms yet, but it's only a matter of time.

Love your header. Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs, Celestina Marie
