And Then The Rains Came

First the fires came.  Friday afternoon a fast moving brush fire broke out near our home.  Even Saturday the mountain now blackened by fire continued to smolder and fire fighters worked their hoses with water pumped from a major street.  This morning we woke up to rain.  It had rained all night and continued to rain throughout today.  Nature has at the very least a sense of humor and possibly even a sense of irony.  Had the rains come Friday morning the fire would never have started.  Always mud slides come after the rains which come after the fires.  Had it rained Friday morning not only would we not have had a fire, we wouldn't have to worry about mud slides.
Yo!  Nature!  It's okay to change the order or things. Just because You've always done things this way doesn't mean you have to keep doing them the same way.  Just a suggestion.  Do what you wish.
