Rain here, followed by more rain, with some rain after that. Even so, we are still one inch behind normal for this point in the season (starts in July -- we are at 21.5"). Today might bring us up to normal.
On pronouncing names -- in New Zealand and Australia I had lots of people telling me I mis-pronounced my own name . I pronounce Vaughn, "von". But then I have always mis-pronounced my sister's name, too. It is Wende, but I say "Windy", which considering how she can talk and talk and talk -- is rather accurate. "Wende" is a German last name -- but no one in our family has ever pronounced the "W" as a "V"!
