Rendering by Jack Graham from the cover of “It Always Rains After a Dry Spell” It seems like my entire life has been spent living in a drought. I was born in Mesa, Arizona in where we lived on a small livestock farm. My father, a patient man, would always say, “It always rains after a dry spell.”. Get this from a library! It always rains after a dry spell!: and other short tales of the Old Southwest. [Marshall Trimble; Jack Graham]. From my Dad: It always rains after a long dry spell. If it doesn't rain within three days of Wednesday, it won't rain that week. Evening red and morning gray, send a sailor on his way- evening gray and morning red bring the rain upon his head.

In the fall when we have our first rains you always hear the CHP advise traffic to slow down as the pavement surface is especially slippery through the first couple of rains. This is because road oil that has come to the surface in the summer heat is sitting on top, mixing with rainwater.
July When the Sky Ran Dry. Texas has suffered through many dry spells, but none so bad as the fifties drought. To the West Texans caught in its fiercest grip, it seemed like the world was ending. The welcome rains came after a several-week dry spell that had lawns turning brown and withering. Instead, the rain left us a soggy yard from over two inches of precipitation and had us constantly drying off our large, long-haired dogs after their required outings. I’ve always been a fan of Susie Moloney, ever since I picked up The Dwelling on a whim after reading about her in a copy of Maclean’s magazine. The Dry Spell is a remarkable, and truly unique novel. Moloney writes beautiful and totally absorbing prose. She /5(28). Ireland enjoys a temperate maritime climate, due mainly to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and the presence of the Gulf Stream.
