I am so disappointed!!!!  We had a stunning rainbow last night right in our front corn field.

I took the photos —PERFECT!

I down loaded them and LOST THEM…sob! sob!

Only this pale other end survived…

SmallI guess this is better than nothing.  But if you could have seen the other….



After a few couple more stops we headed back.

Our trip back was fast…we decided that we would just hit the interstate and head home as fast as we could go.


On thing about the interstate — it’s boring!  Miles and miles of the above.

Since Terry worked as a Line Foreman for our REA for 37 years we always look at electric poles, sub stations, transfer stations, you name it…stuff no one else sees but really does exists.


These wires are created special for areas that the wind whips through so power isn’t lost.  Or at least they hope it isn’t lost.

Trucks2-I-80I-80 is an major road from one coast to the other…therefore, we met lots and lots of semi’s.


We spent the night in Kearney, Nebraska.  One thing about about Nebraska there is lots, and lots of history in this state.


It was good to see Denver again!



When we started out of Denver we could see storms ahead of us.


It was raining and snowing up to the tunnel and then at the tunnel the sun was shining (go figure)

Storm-on-TunnelThe other side of the tunnel was wet and nasty.

Glenwood-Canyon-2Glenwood Canyon was still beautiful but wet.

End-of-the-day-1Boy, was it nice to get home again.

Your friend in Colorado,

WetMore flash flooding is predicted for our part of Western Colorado.

Although, we are NOT getting what the Boulder, Colorado Springs, Longmont, and Greeley area are having. (They are in the Corridor of our State)  Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone in those flood damaged areas. 😦

slimeOur rain puddles are starting to grow slime


Even the trees are showing signs of moss


We are so wet it is hard to find a spot to walk without sinking up to your ankles.


An old-timer called this the ‘100-year rain’.


This morning we had some scattering of blue skies


Just seeing the blue made me happy.


Last night there was also a break in the clouds


The sunlight was outstanding! It caught the rim of Black Canyon.  You can’t see the other mountains behind Black Canyon because the clouds have them covered.


The sunlight also produced a rainbow


Rainbows always make me think of hope.


According to the weather channel today is the last horrible day of torrential rain, then the slow moving storm will move on…which means it will move toward the east possibly hitting Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and/or parts of Texas, it just depends on the the jet stream.  I sure hope you don’t get the floods, but lots of really nice ground soaking rain. 🙂

Rain-5I hope your Sunday turns out well my friends,



If You Search Long Enough Someone Will Have It

Since we were traveling to Wyoming, to visit Kath and Daryl,  DH wanted to make a circle and head into Bridgeport, Nebraska, to go shopping.


Have you EVER seen so many old tractors and parts? 


These little jaunts to ‘buy parts’ always amaze me.


And he found what he needed!
