Rainy May Weather

It felt so good, when I woke up to a rainy morning. I had my window cracked and listen to the thunder storm, while I was working on the computer. The air feels and smells fresh. It is a relieve from the seasonal allergies and this humidity. Earlier, I had to wear my cardigan, while I was sitting at the desk. After all those 80+ degree days, today in the mid 60s felt a little bit chilly. It is amazing, how fast the body adopts to the warmer temperatures.

There are more thunder storms with a bit of sunshine in-between, in the forecast. Flora and Fauna can use it. But our lake is over five feet above full pool and flooding the trails and some nearby properties, again. All this water has to go down the Trinity River and into Dallas. Let’s hope, it won’t be as bad as it was in May 2015. That year, the lake went over the spillway. It took months until the water receded, and the trails were repaired by volunteers.

After Rainy Days Come Sunny Days

After several cloud-covered and a rainy day, it was nice to see the Sun for a change. Unfortunately, the sky was still cloudy last night. So, we had no chance to see the “biggest” Moon of this year. After seeing the Lunar Eclipse last month, I’m not too sad about it either. This morning, the sky cleared up. And it also warmed up nicely during the day. I used this opportunity to capture photos of Spring slowly rolling into North Texas.

Rainy February Day (3)

When it rains, I go and capture photos in the backyard. 😉 The Bradford Pear trees are almost there. They show signs, it can take only a couple to a few days, before they’ll begin to bloom. Our broccoli plants are growing well. And I had to mix some pink into the game. The hyacinth just look lovely in all that brown/beige/grayish February rainy day.

After The Rain (2)

It rained in the early morning hours and all afternoon, today. But once the rain was gone, the clouds began to move out. And we’ve got rewarded with a colorful sunset. I can’t wait to see the Sun after three days of rain, again. It was too gloomy, the last few days.

The Autumn Rain Is Back

After a couple of nice sunny days, the rain is back. Katelynn and the school band have to go and take Plan B until tonight’s Homecoming Football Game.Hopefully the weather forecast is right, and it stops to rain until the game is over. Sara is not happy, that it is wet and cool. After all the kids had early release from school, today. Sara and I watch the falling rain drops, while we sit on the front porch. At least that keeps her occupied for a little bit.

Rainy October Day

The last few days, we’ve got quite a bit of rain in North Texas. Our garden and the yard is soaking wet. And the next days, we expect much cooler weather. We finally go from Summer into Autumn. If it gets cool enough, we might have a fire going in the fireplace. In the meantime, I use the opportunity to photograph some rain droplets on our porch.
