Oh, Happy, Rainy, Cold Day!

Rain has quietly and gently fallen for three days...not a typical Texas gully-washer but what I imagine must be more like a slow soaking of the Pacific Northwest.  The ground literally heaves a sigh of relief and all the foliage that has looked so forlorn is responding with a gorgeous autumnal glow. 

Oh, happy, rainy, cold day indeed!

  4. It has rained all day here, and I feel the same way as you - rejoicing! I've loved looking outside at the rain falling. It's wonderful to have a nice soak!

  5. Same here in southern Wisconsin, except our rain is a lot colder. Time for snow! (I never thought I'd say that, but cold rain goes right to the bones.)

  6. It's been the same way here in Boerne for the last 3 days and I LOVE it!! Today was a perfect fall/ winter day... I cooked all day :) As I walked around the property with the pups in between cooking and rain showers, I swear I could hear the earth inhale the rain. Such a lovely day. Thanks for sharing Cat :)

  7. Glad you're getting some rain. I know Texas needs it badly! Beautiful picture, especially the burst of yellow in the middle. :)

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.
"Pooh!" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
