After a wild and wooly night where the hail drumming on his
kennel had the dog flee his post as guard dog for the chickens
and flee to the safety of the verandah where he could be
close to me.
In a brief brake in the weather I braved the foot deep slush
in the dip of our newly graded road.
The council, in it's wisdom, has a habit of grading our dirt
road just before big rains are expected.
All the disturbed dirt washes down into the dip in the road
creating a real driving hazard.
Stopped at the chemist's,
view in front of my car
and looking the other way.
Half a car length behind me there was a tiny spot where I could
cross to the footpath without filling my shoes.
I really appreciate the bounty from the sky,
it is just a bit difficult to keep warm enough.
we just had some 'bounty from the sky' here, too. thankfully, no serious thunder and lightning. stay safe, dry and warm as you can!ReplyDelete
Ah, it does look cold and wet!! Great shots for the day as always, Arija!! Hope your week is off to a great start!! Enjoy and stay warm!!!ReplyDelete
It's raining here after the temps rising to the high30's. We sure are warm, but still wet. Those are great reflections in the puddles.ReplyDelete
I hear the storm coming, we will have a funny night too.ReplyDelete

We have had some sunny days after some rain last week. Cool reflections in the puddles. Have a happy week ahead!ReplyDelete
In some places that would be known as a flood. I hope most of it soaks into the ground as it is needed! Keep your toes dry! (I can stand quite a bit of chill as long as my feet are warm ... not a big fan of being out in the rain.)ReplyDelete
Great captures Arija. Love those reflections! As for keeping warm, I can recommend thermal clothing - it's not bulky, is light but very effective. (available from Kathmandu outlets)ReplyDelete
That last shot is so pretty!ReplyDelete
Yes, wonderful photos, I really like the beauty of the reflections in the puddles with leaves!ReplyDelete
Wonderful reflections but miserable to live amongst.ReplyDelete
Yes very difficult to keep warm Arija. The rain on my roof has been that loud I thought it was going to fall in.ReplyDelete
Wonderful reflections, Arija!ReplyDelete
We had some nice storm here too...
Pretty reflections in the big puddle. We, too, have had way too much rain with flooding on all the rivers, farm fields, and roads.ReplyDelete
those are wonderful captures. Loved the idea behind it.ReplyDelete
Nice reflections. We had lots of rain in the winter. For now it's dry and warmer.ReplyDelete
Great reflections but not nice to have to go outside.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos--lovely to look at but not so lovely to deal with the puddles. We finally got a couple of inches of rain after being very tinder dry since breakup. The moisture was much needed, but put the river at flood stage, with a few flooded roads.ReplyDelete
Great shots from after the rain.ReplyDelete
It is raining outside p;) Really wonderful pictures♡♡♡ And thank you very much for the word 'bounty'; we need it unless....ReplyDelete
Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*
I'll bet your world smells wonderful after the rain. Stay warm and dry.ReplyDelete
I´m glad the sun came out. It improved the shots a lot. Glad you came over without being wet. :)ReplyDelete
