Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.
– John Updike
Wonderful pictures! They’re good reminders that sometimes it’s the little things in life that make us happy.
Thanks! It did make me happy – taking the pictures and seeing all those little drops just everywhere on that evergreen. They were swelling up and finally dripping off the ends of the needles and they were so reflective and beautiful.
And it made me happy again when I saw the pictures. Small pleasures!
Oh, I’m looking longingly at your pictures of raindrops, trying to remember the last time we had any down here in parched Texas . . . It is the small pleasures indeed!
We’ve had so much rain that it’s hard to imagine not having any. Still there are parts of the river that have seemed shockingly low at times this summer. I hope you get some soon!
I don’t know if it’s normal for Kentucky to get much rain this time of year, but this is the wettest place I’ve ever spent a summer. It seems to rain every third day, and this has been going on for weeks! I love it. And I can deal with these cool nights and so-so hot days. But the insane part of me misses Texas summers.
You miss Texas period. That’s not insane, that’s normal.
As for rain, we have fairly rainy summers, even if it’s just a thunderstorm that pours for an hour or three and then moves on. But here in Virginia it’s mostly hot days (116 on Monday) and warm nights.
Oh my God! 116??? Was that the heat index? I know it’s more humid there…
True, I do miss Texas, period. Always will! 🙂
I think it was just the regular temperature. It was damned hot – and yes, humid too. But all the temps around our area (on the little map that the weather guy shows) were normal, like 97, 98, 105 – which we’ve been in the very high 90’s for the past week or more. He didn’t say heat index.
