Donde Estas?

We are approaching the end of October, and as of this writing, there is no rain in sight. We all have done our rain chants and dances and still nothing. So, I have decided to plead directly to El Niño in his native language. So much is being said about this elusive phenomenon and we have yet to see it. So, here goes.

Donde Estas, El Niño? Te esperamos y te necesitamos pronto. No tenemos lluvia y todas las plantas y arboles estan muriendose. Te suplicamos que llegues para aliviar la sequîa. Te buscaremos en las semanas que vienen. Muchas Gracias.

There, let’s hope that works. Maybe I’ll even regret summoning him when the torrents do arrive, but I’ll take my chances.

P. S. Thanks to all who acknowledge my writings. They seem to hit a note with so many and I appreciate the comments.
