Over and over again our major newspaper has said recently that it’s a dry year. Not here it isn’t. Last month was more than five inches, and so far this month it’s already been the same. Not too wet, mind you. Enough to be an excellent start to spring, but not enough to produce more than the odd shallow puddle, just until the drizzle stops, when the puddles vanishe again. We’re a medium sort of weather area. Others get floods, we get a good rainfall, others get drought, we have a dryish spell. And considering that, it makes me wonder why more people don’t buy and settle here, because it’s a good place to be.
