The drouth is ended


(Yes, drouth is a correct, alternate spelling.) We hadn't had rain since about the middle of July. It was sprinkling and thundering often during the day, but really didn't rain significantly. I was eating dinner at a friend's house yesternight and it was just sprinkling again, until I stepped outside and chanted Rorate coeli desuper, et nubes pluant justum. (Drop down from heaven above and let the clouds rain the just one.) It immediately began to pour.

You could have waited until choir practice was over and we were home. We all got soaked!!!

Maybe we all need to learn that sentence and repeat it again!
