And so it begins . . . (I hope)

It starts with temperature dropping to just bearable degrees.

The wind begins to whip.

You wonder if you should head inside.

And then you begin to hear the rumbles.

You look up and this is what you see.....



Sorry for the distortion - took the picture through the screen. Not a good idea if you want a good picture, by the way.

You hear a crack of lightening.

You really begin to wonder if you should go inside.

But the weather has teased you many, many times before.

And then it begins.  Fat raindrops begin to fall.

And you sigh - with a bit of frustration and a bit of glee.

Because now you must head inside, but at least you won't have to water the plants tonight.

****
Yeah, things are looking a little parched 'round here lately.  And if it's gonna rain - at least it's at night.

  1. That's a pretty ominous looking sky! Great shots, and I'd head down to the basement if you have one...

  3. Do you live in an area where there are Tornados Gigi ? That would terrify me, we need rain but I am not praying for it yet as we get so much all year xx

  5. Yeah....a good drink for the plants every night would be preferable, don't you think? Well, convenient anyway.

    Oh and a drink for us as well!
