Be careful what you wish for!
August 30, 2006
Here in New Mexico we’re in year six of a terrible drought – or were up until about a month ago. Yes, we needed rain but not all at once!
The good news is that the Hatch chile festival is still on! But, we’re still waiting to see what effect the flooding will have on chile prices. (This sign is probably underwater even yet.) And, just when we were having a bumper crop. Seems like it’s always something, doesn’t it?
All that said, I love to listen to the rain as I stand in the cozy kitchen preparing dinner. Simple minds, simple pleasures, I suppose.
