Tree Rain

We got a bit of 'tree' rain yesterday and the night before.  It's called 'tree rain' here because when the Marine Layer, low altitude stratus clouds which form out over the cold waters of the Pacific ocean, is thick enough and high enough it comes all the way up into these mountains.  Then it condenses on the trees until there is enough water to drip off and . . . voila! Tree rain.  But, it doesn't provide much water unless it happens for a week or more at a time and it quit doing that about five or six years ago.  We need rain, real rain, desperately.
