Spahn and Sain and pray for rain

Has long raced wildly through my brain

As has that ever famed refrain,

Rain in Spain, mainly, the plain.


It wasn’t til it went away,

That rain became our daily stay,

To pray for what we needed most,

While watching lawns burn into toast.


Today, it seems, it’s coming back,

As thunder booms outside my shack,

And lightning sparks bright light, then dark,

Convincing me – this is no lark.


It’s going to rain in Houston today.



Thank God.

    You’re a poet
    And I didn’t know it.
    The dark clouds perched over our home, the temperature dropped almost below 70! And we had a nice cloudburst that lasted about four minutes. Here’s hoping we get some more of that over the next 24 – 36 hours.

    Now I’m worried about a possible rainout for our Satuday SABR game in Katy. Its been raining for about 5 hours now in Sugar Land. Sure is nice, the ground is very, very thirsty.
