The Forecast: Two Sources

From the first reading for morning prayer in the lectionary this morning:

Seven days passed, and then the waters of the flood covered the earth. It was the seventeenth day of the second month of Noe's six hundredth year, when all the springs of the great depth beneath broke through, and the flood-gates of heaven were opened; and it rained for forty days and forty nights on the earth. . . .

You know the rest of the story. It's in the 7th chapter of Genesis

I know. Rain isn't a big deal where you live. But it's another story here in this semi-desert area. It's even worth blogging about.
