It's been raining here for the last two days. The rain stopped this afternoon and the sky is beautiful. But the water is still here.
Our yard always seems to collect the water and squishes excessively after rain. I've become accustomed to this and try to walk lightly (if that's possible). On my way to the library I noticed a weird noise in the grass. I think you can actually hear the water seeping through the ground. Most of the way up the hill I heard small trickling noises in the grass.
I think this is really exciting, obviously, since I'm writing about it. In Florida, rainwater just sits and habors mosquitoes.
