Raindrops fell from the magnolia leaves with the slight breeze. California needed the rain with this drought. The forecast promised more rain tomorrow, but everyone held their breath.
Cooled after the rainfall, Patty enjoyed a slow-paced walk while she thought about how the drought affected her life. More expensive food and gas were just part of the cost. Fewer people migrated to the state with the decreased rainfall. The reservoirs, ponds, and rivers were extremely low.
Something had to happen. Everyone lived in fear of what was next.
Living in fear was no way to live at all!
