In honor of the first significant rain in months, I'm veering meteorological today, (with a touch of astronomical at the end). We're up to 3/4" for the last 24 hours, with more expected. Yipee!
Stop laughing, you Oregonians and Washingtonians!
I love the sound of it in this short video. Unfortunately, I can't share the smell.
We did get an impromptu hailstorm on November 6, complete with rainbow accessory. It didn't amount to much precipitation, but the birds were notably less thirsty for a few days, which made me realize that birdbath isn't just for my entertainment.
Here's lightning strike from September...
...and a lovely full-moon-set the husband caught the morning of November 12.
He also nabbed this artful receding mountains shot that morning. I don't think I've ever been able to capture those fading purples in a photo quite this well. Maybe because I'm always looking the other way in the evenings instead.
The prize goes to the early riser.
