Into each life, some rain must fall.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Oh Henry! I suppose you're right. But it would be nice if it didn't fall on freshly-swathed hay.
Don't get me wrong: Many times, we are thankful for rain. And I know some of our farm friends in other states would gladly take an installment of rain to break their drought conditions. So I truly should not complain.
However, much of our first cutting of hay has had four rain showers on it. Yes, count them: 4!
Let's hope it's not a foreshadowing of wheat harvest!
