Waiting on a Storm

So we spent all week waiting on this storm. We love the rain, but this winter it's been a rather scarce sight. Just when we'd lost hope, stopped monitoring the weather predictions and sky colors, these big gray clouds rolled in and the rain started, so we can finally make use of the piles of firewood gathered, the lentil soup ingredients, fresh drawing pads and craft notes we've been counting on for days.

Let it rain.
And please, let it stay awhile...
