They said on the news a little while ago that today was "the wettest day in January ever." Wow. I believe it. It rained and rained and rained and rained last night/early this morning. We had a lot of thunder and lightning yesterday evening, and even ate our dinner in the dark so that we could enjoy the lightning flashes! (It's been so long since we've had a good afternoon thunderstorm with lightning that my kids (who are never woken up by storms) acted as though they'd never seen it.) But the rain let up around lunch time, so Josiah and I had to go explore outside. It seems like it's been forever since we've had some good mud to play in! Plus, it's always fun to go look at the creek when it's flooding out of it's banks.
