In East Tennessee, especially here on our tiny farm at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, a sound not heard in weeks pleasantly surprised us all by a slow, steady soothing rain yesterday. The sound was so deceptive, televisions, radios, and voices were quietened to make sure it was really true! I spent many years visiting my grandparents farm in an area of Greene County known as Caney Branch. Little did I know the things my grandparents told me would be advice I follow still today. The “red sky at morning, sailors take warning” hasn’t been seen here in weeks. The sweet smell of fall and the crispness in the air tells me the saying “it has never rained too late YET” still reigns true as the sky opened up and gave us all much needed rain.
