Over the weekend we had the first real rain since last spring / winter and it’s so badly needed.
What a thrill to see the snow!
We’ve already had thunderstorms in May and I’ve been enjoying the unusually cool June.
Lightening, thunder, rain and a beautiful sunset:
I was actually painting a shed earlier and had no idea we might get rain:
More than the usual 5 drops / sqft and I finally shut off the irrigation
No filters, just the natural sunset:
The weather has been great! A little rain here and there, it cooled off, but it’s also very HUMID. At almost 11 pm it’s 78 F outside, not bad at all.

Finally some real rain and it cooled off too! 77 F outside right now at 3:30 pm. Love it! Until a few days ago my high inside was around 85 F, but it’s 87 F now and would be 89 by tonight if we didn’t have the storm. Hopefully I can get the house cooledContinue Reading

Yesterday and today it was cloudy most of the day. Depressing! Update 6/12/17: Last Thursday was another very nice day, butContinue Reading
I’m so used to SUNNY days and the countless cloudy and/or windy days this winter sure are depressing. Of course we need the rain, but it definitely was nice to have some sunshine today before the next storm hits. More sunshine starting Tuesday according to the forecast. I hope they’re right!
I was hoping for snow and we almost got it: It snowed a little Christmas Eve, but it was too warm to stick. Today we finally got some sunshine after several days of rain and clouds.
