Then in Rained–Thursday, May 7, 2015

river.jpgYep.  Just after I finished posting to the blog, the heaven’s opened up and poured.

And poured

Then poured some more.  Our driveway turned into a river.

The events yesterday seemed to match the weather,

  • our mailbox was damaged (immature Jr. High damage…easily fixed, but still)
  • one of our cell phones was pick up/stolen (we put a stop on the number)
  • A load coming from a semi to our tuck damaged the tail gate (Terry said it can be fixed)
  • our car developed a need to never go down the road again (sigh)
  • It rained off and on all night

But as the soggy, miserable, cold day wore on

  • we purchased a new mailbox, turned the damage into the Sheriff and the post office, and put the new mail box up.  🙂
  • Late, late in the day our cell phone was turned into one of the store clerks where the phone was taken lost–today I will have it it re-instated.  Turning the ability to off to use it helped, I do believe.
  • The tail gate damage is on the inside of the truck, not the outside.  It will be a repair, but not a obvious one
  • The car has an appointment to get fixed on Friday—Alan says he can do the job without too much trouble.
  • A beautiful basket of flowers were delivered to our house for Mother’s DayBullock-Orieo
  • I have about 8 humming birds now and two pair of Bullock OriolesClose
  • The Orange-banded Bumble Bees are out and about
  • The sun is here this morning, the little birds started chirping and singing the sun up at first light—I sang with them!

There is joy all around!

Your friend on a Western Colorado Farm,

Linda

  2. Ooooh how I wish we could have relieved you of some of that water before the storm got to you! We could use some rivers around here. I’ve never seen an orange-banded bumble bee, how interesting!

  4. I bet you did sing with the sun and why does it seem things are much worse when it is dark/rainy/gray – you had a bad run but it appears the universe it making it right. I am so impressed by your oriel – not a bird we get here so I love to see them!

  5. Great post! I have never seen and orange-banded bumble bee. Interesting. Oh – that picture of the Oriole! Love it! I was just wondering the other day if your hummingbirds were back. I saw some around here and it made me think of you. 🙂
