    We have had a lot of good rain, which has given all the plants new life, for which we are very thankful. Thus far we haven’t experienced any severe storms or tornados as other areas in the neighboring counties have. Hopefully we won’t. My heart goes out to those who have lost their homes, or had them severely damaged.
