It was raining and dripping
from the tree make a pretty picture.
If you're in an area that isn't supposed to get above zero today, and that's without counting windchill, you may want to just skip over this entry! Come back and read it in May or June!
This is a rain update: We’re on the seventh
consecutive day of rain. This morning at devotions we were discussing (as opposed to whining!) to the camp director about the rain, and the thought that this area was in a drought. He said this is the most rain they’ve had for years…and the weather reporters confirm that. Well, the residents are probably a lot more thrilled about it than those of us sitting on mobile foundations are! On the way to our meeting room this morning I told Bob I wanted to get some pictures of the creek running (think: gushing). We headed over, and it was dry. Dry: as in no water
. That was at 7:45. At 11:30 (ok, the women work rather short days!) I could hear water when I was headed home~~in the rain~~and when I went to look at the creek, the water was rushing past me. So I walked back to the meeting room~~in the rain~~to
get my camera and then walked back down (yep...still) to get pictures. These pictures are after less than two hours of rain.
Last week I heard the radio announcer say that she is so tired of this cold. She just wants this winter to be over. I figure if anyone in Montana heard her, she’d better be hiring herself a bodyguard!
It’s supposed to be sunnyish tomorrow, and then rain until Sunday. Boy I’m glad their dry spell is over. Really glad……
