Rain & Toothpick Sculptures

We've gotten rain a couple of times this week.  (Hurray!)  And yesterday was even a decent soaker!  (*wild applause*)  There were no little rivulets of water running around the yard, during the rain, as there might normally have been; I guess the ground just slurped it up like a dry sponge, so it never had a chance to puddle up...  We're still many inches behind what's typical for this area at this point in the year, but this is progress.

Have you seen this toothpick sculpture of (some) of the landmarks of San Francisco?  The detail is amazing. And if that's not stunning enough, there are multiple tracks for ping-pong balls to roll through the sculpture, too.  (Check out the video at the bottom of the linked page to see them in action.)
