What is this??

Can someone please tell me what this strange substance is that comes from the sky? 


It drops out of the sky, falling sometimes hard, sometimes fast.  It makes the dirt look funny and squishy. 


And then, it leaves pools of this stuff! 


You can see your reflection in them, too, which is really weird.  Perhaps a one way mirror... spooky!


So, does any one know what this stuff is?  I am getting seriously concerned about it.... maybe I should call our mayor.....EMERGENCY!

Then, on this strange measuring thing we found, it said we had half an inch of it........

Any one else scared??

Ellie,
Yeah, no kidding!! We haven't had tons of thunder, but lots of lightning lately! (gotta keep an eye out for fires started by those!!) Aha! Rain! What a strange name.... sounds foreign to me....

Atlanta,
Yeah, it's great!!!!! Thanks for the comment!

Joshua,
I am not really sure. We were gone to a wedding at the time. Where we were at (just at the town nearest us-about ten miles), it rained for... oh, I'd say about 2-3 hours? But then, rain can be so fickle around here, so I don't know how long it rained at our place.

Samantha,
Oh yeah! I am glad y'all got some. Hopefully, though, you won't be flooding like last time! (was that earlier this year, or last year??) Thanks for the comment, dear!
