I am happy to say that, yesterday, I was wrong in doubting we could get any of the predicted rain. Very wrong! It poured hard! This is the rain shooting off the end of the rain barrel diverter. Everything is getting so nice and green again. I might even have to mow the lawn again … Continue reading Morning critters, and a break in the rain
This morning, I woke to the sound of a light rain. I was so excited! I honestly didn't expect the predicted rain to hit us. Of course, by the time I went out to do my morning rounds, it had pretty much stopped. Which I suppose was good, since switching out memory cards on the … Continue reading It’s raining again!
I gotta say, I am so glad we got those transplants in, yesterday! I'm also glad we're just getting rain today, and not the severe storms that other parts of our province is getting. Not that far south, either. The motion sensor on the garage security camera gets triggered by lightning. While checking the files, … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: transplants surviving the downpour

A couple of photos going back to the end of June. We were finally getting a really solid rainfall. It did not stop the birds any! 😀
We had quite a bit of rain, overnight, which made for some lovely fog this morning - and lots of water and mud to slog through! When putting out feed for the deer, some of the usual spots I leave feed are all water right now, so I had to change that up a bit. … Continue reading Wet morning rounds
We had predictions for a series of thunderstorms throughout the day, starting at noon. It didn't quite work out that way. At least not in our area. The first rainfall (I won't even call it a thunderstorm, though there was some thunder) didn't start until late afternoon/early evening. Which worked out well for us, since … Continue reading So Green!
Last night, we did indeed get an all out thunderstorm with pouring rain! It was fantastic! At one point, I was hearing things hit the window that sounded like hail. Our van was in the yard, to make it more accessible for my husband to get to his appointment, but he ended up rescheduling the … Continue reading In the Storm, and … really??
