Rain, at last!

I did this at lunch - doubtful we got any appreciable rain at all, we were on the very edge of this as it went sliding by. (Not the 1.35" stated in the stats.) We did have one good crack of thunder. No chance to hear rain pitter-patting on the metal roof and going back to sleep. You can see we are in transition, but seems like the bottom will fall out soon and it will really feel like October. We have yet to turn the heat on, soon, it will be soon, probably after next Tuesday or Wednesday.

I'm still working on Julia, I've changed it some and shortened it some. More to chop.

Have a great weekend!

  1. i had good pitter/patter on my metal roof this morning, but had to get the pups out, get out to the barn, and head to work instead of heading back to bed. :) still, grateful for the rain we did get.

    1. I checked - here, we got sprinkled, like for ironing. Period. Glad you got some! Please direct the rain to mine and Paula's houses, we'd both appreciate it!

  2. It's still warm and almost hot here. Wish TexWisGirl would send some of that rain this way.

    1. We had a chilly day here, but promises to warm up again before it decides to freeze us out.

  3. Wish I could send you some of our rain. It's been nice these last few days. The ground is trying to dry up. But apparently more rain is on its way.
    Further upstate they are having horrid floods

    1. It's always feast or famine, isn't it? I imagine those north of us got a good dousing. :(

    1. If I get it finished as much as I want, it almost looks as if I won't. It's getting harder and harder. Still is something to shoot for ...

  5. Our rain has been very intermittent and light but enough to keep things green. I suspect we will now head into a drought period because I had my irrigation system winterized yesterday. It's the same phenomenon of the rain comes after you wash your car. Invariably when I can't water my lawn any more there won't be a rain cloud over my house for weeks.

    If I were near you I would wash my car so your rain chances would improve.

    1. That's usually the way it goes, Isn't it?
      Yesterday's rain made us wet, just.

  6. It's been a rainy weekend here but nothing major. We don't get those amazing thunderstorms like we used to get when we lived in Michigan. It's a steady light rain. Just enough to get things wet. Soon the snow will come but probably not here in the valley which is actually nice because it's only about a 10 min. drive to the mtns if we really want to play in it. Anymore I'm happy with snow on Christmas and that's it. I'm done.

  7. We never have to worry about too little rain here. Thunderstorms, sleet, snow.... All are the norm rather than the exception.

    1. You are lucky for the rain ... the snow? Not so much.

  8. So you are still working on Julia?
    Today was warm here... I never know what to do with the flip flops. Put them away... get them out... put them away... Maybe I'll just leave them lay on the bedroom floor. They don't take up that much space.
