Pic Today 7/9/12


God brought us rain, finally,
after a month long drought and heat wave.

It has been soooo long,
maybe a month or so without rain.
And record setting temperatures.

So the weather has broken,
and the week ahead will be in the 80's,
with more rain, hopefully.

Everyone is grateful,
especially the plants and animals
(and farmers!)

The air smells fresh and clean,
once again.


  1. Petrichor!!!

    Thank God for rain. We had thunderstorms here today.

    Stay cool.

  2. I'm glad that time is cool ... is a delight to see these pictures ... I get the smell of wet earth.
    I miss the rain ...
    Good for you dear Rick!
    I propose an experiment:
    Walk through a garden in the rain, without umbrellas, barefoot ... is a unique experience ...
    A few years ago I did the same but on the beach ... it's a memory I will not forget ...

  3. the rain is so beautiful and relaxing.
    also a blessing from above.
    here's hope this little desert over here gets a shower or two.

  4. Beautiful photos!

  6. I am so glad you got some relief, Rick.
    We have been without rain for just about 3 weeks now.
    Most of the plants have gone dormant, and the lawns look like hayfields.
    No rain in sight this week, but I am hoping they are wrong.
