222: Rain, rain…Posted: May 3, 2011
(Looking at the tulips through a window on a rainy day.)
The rain has been pouring down since the wee hours of the morning. I sometimes wonder if it is possible for the earth to drown or just wash away with all this water.
I’ve been trying to look at all this rain in a positive way, but it’s becoming increasing difficult. If I were going to be home all week, I would have to wait until Thursday or Friday for a chance at dry weather with hints of sunshine.
The green, I suppose, is one of the positives. I don’t think I have ever seen the world turn as green as it is right now. It almost surprises me that everything hasn’t been bleached out by the rain and the grayness of the skies.
I’m posting early today because I have a full schedule ahead of me. The housesitter will be settling in this afternoon and I need to get things ready for her. I also have to do some proofreading, get in the rest of my outdoor time, and pack my bag. M and I will be on the road again sometime this evening.
We’re going east to visit with family. It will be quick trip. We might fit in some fun while we’re at it. It depends on the weather.
The high here today is going to be about 44 degrees. 49 degrees tomorrow. The high where we’re headed (New Jersey) is going to be 83 degrees today, but down into the 60s (with rain) tomorrow. We’ll be bringing the rain with us. But it should be nice on Thursday, and warmer than it will be here in the Bogs.
I’ve set up auto-posts for the time I’ll be away, but will try to post a “live and in person” post when I can. I’m pretty sure I will not have internet access over the weekend. Rest assured I will be getting outside every day, rain or shine, and I’ll be certain to take a few photos of my adventures.
See you next week!
