Our Days are Full of Gray-Blue Light—Monday, May 9, 2016

It’s raining here.  Has been for two days.  The weather people say it will rain at least until Tuesday.

Today Terry turned the irrigation water off. It’s too muddy to walk on the ditch banks.  To turn the irrigation water off is a very strange occurrence once it is turned on.

It’s extremely chilly outside, the air so fresh it will make you cough, if you take a good lungful of it.  The  trees are dripping, water sits on everything; running in rivulets off the eaves.

The sky is still lowering as I write; clouds black in the west and dark grey in the morning east.  It’s cold enough I want to start a fire in the fireplace, although we do have the furnace up and going.

Oh well, rain is good for so many things I will just enjoy it.  The weather people also say major heat is following these series of cold rain storms.

  1. Linda, the “snapshots” of your life are always so fun to read. I always smile when your blogs pop up in my inbox, knowing I’m in for a little treat (like chocolate, only healthier ; ) xoBets

  3. That is a very unusual and pretty flower. I hope the rain is good to you. Many farmers here lost both the first planting and re-planting of the corn crop from all the rain we’ve had, and now the sorghum planting may be in jeopardy.
    Take care, be careful and God bless.

  4. Oh I love that Colorado Columbine! And your other pictures make a rainy day look beautiful! Rain can be hard to take even when we all know full well how much we need it! (I remember Oregon! And we get Spring rain here in Florida too, but it doesn’t last too long usually.)
