A Weather Surprise

19 Oct

Saturday was really a beautiful (but really windy) fall day.  You’ll get to see more pictures throughout the week.

Sunday was supposed to bring another cold front with a slight chance of rain in the morning.  I figured I’d wake up to a chilly a dry morning because we’re still in drought and those slights chances of moisture have brought nothing most times.  Instead, I woke to a winter wonderland.

It was soon gone, but not as soon as we would have liked.

This worries me a little bit about what kind of winter we might have.

Frosty Morning

4 Oct

Yesterday’s drizzle continued off and on through the day and evening and overnight.  It really didn’t amount to much rain at all.  But it left my gates wet.

The temperatures also dropped enough that there was frost on the bottom.

Even the llamas were covered in dew and frost.

It was a beautiful morning for a walk.

It turned into a perfect fall day.

Sunday Showers

27 Sep

After our week of everyday rain that left us with just over four inches, we haven’t had another drop until today.

Despite that huge rain earlier, we’re still horribly dry, so every rain shower is blog worthy.

I still can’t get used to the magnolia tree not being there.

It also serves as a reminder of how much still needs to be repaired from the derecho.  I’m not complaining.  I’m on a list, and my damage is not too bad compared to those who still have holes in their roofs.

It was enough to bring the goats up from pasture.

It was also enough to make Bob Cat leave his usual spot of lounging on the patio.

He decided it was time to come in for a bath to dry off.

Once he finished his bath, he find a nice, cozy spot to nap.

Rocky agrees it’s a day for being lazy.  He refuses to get out of my chair.

I am grateful for a rainy Sunday without wind.
