Fiorella has read that a fifteen-day celebration starting today ushers in the Chinese Year of the Dragon, especially the Water Dragon.
Living in Central Texas, which is anticipating a ten-year drought, Fiorella hopes the dragon will favor us with rainfall, lots of it. Not a flood, of course. Just enough to keep the reservoirs full, the rivers flowing, and the lawns green. Just enough that Fio doesn't have to siphon water from her bathtub out to a hose and carefully ration it out to thirsty plants again this summer.
