A little rain is a wonderful thing, put it to use

By FELDER RUSHING,

I love rain, to a point. Love how it cascades in rivulets from my back deck’s corrugated tin top, how it refreshes the birds’ baths.

And overall it’s a good thing. Makes our trees grow so well, saving us from having to decide between a cactus-filled xeriscape landscape or dragging hoses to keep thirstier plants alive.
