The Joy of Thunder—- Thursday, August 23, 2018

We have had rain!!!

Beautiful cool misty rain…although not long, nor in sheets of showers

But still, it is rain!  Other places around us got more rain than we.  But I will take whatever we get and feel a relief at that!

Even the little hummingbirds calmly rested on the flowers as the thunder rolled over-head

In the stillness after the storm(s) rolled through the little birds fed in the bright pearled mist

The earth not so wet we slipped as we walked along the ditch banks.

Still, the moisture in the air, the lack of smoke because of the rain was all bliss!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. I’m so happy you got some rain. We are just hoping the wind finally blows out the smoke after 4 days of being trapped inside. Maybe this afternoon it will get better here. I doubt we will see rain but so very glad you got even a bit.


  2. I’m glad you got some precious rain!! I love those photos with the beautiful clouds and the grass reflecting in the water! Hopefully the areas where the fires are got some rain as well!! How I wish we could share some of ours with you!!!


  3. So glad you had a little rain… it reminds us that rain can happen!!! Sad to know that the fire on the Plateau is still making its destructive presence felt
    Thinking of you, and the wild life on the Plateau XXXXXXXX
