Sending Rain to California


SOC winner 2017

Today’s Stream of Consciousness prompt is “liqu”

The first thing that popped into my mind was how Dorothy liquidated the wicked witch by throwing water on her. I wish someone big would throw liquid, ie water, on the fires in California. God, please give them some of this rain we’re getting in North Carolina, even the snow my son is getting in the mountains. Just move it on over there to the west. God, we don’t need any more rain here. Please?

Those fires are horrible. I hate to think of the loss of life – human and animal. And plants- the trees. Sad. I know they will come back in other forms. Thank you to the first responders who are battling those fires. I know your adrenaline runs out after a while. My prayers are with you in the west. Sending angels with water buckets, no angels to push the clouds together, punch holes in the clouds, make it RAIN over the fires.

Well, like I hinted at, we have plenty of rain lately where I live. And it’s cold. Have to bring the plants in tomorrow. I’ve been drinking a lot of liquids since I have a cold. Lots of water which I may take for granted, and soup. I like soup anyway in the winter or fall, or any time I have a cold. I’ve had Manhattan clam chowder from a can for lunch the past two days, mixed in some garlic and kale. Last night, I had miso soup at the restaurant, and I plan to make lentil soup Sunday night. Some tomato basil would be good tonight. If I wasn’t a vegetarian (well, almost cause I did eat clam chowder) I’d have chicken soup. But that’s okay. Maybe I’ll have a smoothie for lunch. Apple cider with cinnamon. Oh, I just remembered, I have some green chai tea! I wish I could send all these liquids to California.

Calm those fires, God, give the people strength.

Here’s to the everyday heroes:

I do believe we can make it rain there in California, sooner than later.

Georgia/California/Georgia/California Rain Rain Rain California RAIN rain rain………Southern California Rain. But not floods.

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

  1. Well written JoAnna 🙂
    It is really terrible with those fires, I agree. Wish the fires will be stopped soon and rain would help so much.

  4. Wonderful post! Here is (what I think is) a pingback to my poem. I almost didn’t do this because it is near-impossible for me to post anything without tweaking, rewriting, gnashing teeth 🙂 Oh, well, a humbling post, for me 😀

  5. My heart goes out to all who are affected. God protect them all and strengthen the firefighters! Lord send enough rain to put out the fires. Lord intervene!

  6. You have some lovely thoughts, I like the way you care about the hardships that people are facing. I heard that it is actually snowing in Georgia today.

  7. We owe so much to everyday heroes. Loved the Oz comment! Ding-dong the witch is dead!

    • I’m glad you picked up on the Oz part. I would have liked to have gone with that more, but the Stream of Consciousness had other ideas. And heroes should be recognized as much as possible. Here, and in Oz. 🙂

  8. Thanks for the good rain wishes. That was a cute reference to Oz about liquifying the witch. Soup sounds good and hope you feel better and have less rain and cold there. The firefighters have a very tough job here. I read an article that mentioned some had not slept for several days. We California residents have had trouble sleeping lately too.

  9. I join you in prayer, Joanna. Terrible, reading and watching and imagining how the people there must be feeling.

  10. Yes, please! Rain in California!!

  11. And prayers for the firefighters and other first responders. Lord keep them safe ad bless them for what they do!!! 🙂 ❤
