How to Get it to Rain

(A Drought-Year User’s Guide)

1. Stare at wilting plants and withering grasses for a month.

2. Gasp in shock, every day, when you somehow forget what 90+ degrees feels like in your yard.

3. Sleep with the AC on, even though you live in the high mountain desert, and everyone knows it gets very cold every night (except when it doesn’t) so you should always sleep with the windows open (except when you can’t, because SWEATY).

4. Plan a river float trip for the 4th of July, including talking your Totally Adult, University-Attending Daughter into joining you.

5. Wake up on said Independence Day holiday to sheets of gorgeous rain.

Any questions?

  1. Or, alternately, spend a month rehearsing a patriotic program with 5 little girls. Spend a week trying to perfect ringlets in your daughter’s impossible to curl hair. Put on five very expensive matching dresses for the first time, and have a call time at 6:15 am for a sunrise 4th of July Service. Presto! Buckets of rain!
