Winter Skies

23 Jan

Winter Sky

For weeks, my skies have looked like this: crisp and blue.  The weather has been warm.  Nearly freezing at night and then nearing 70 during the day.  Fall weather, not winter.  Wednesday, it started raining again. Today, it’s pouring.  The weather maps are showing rain through the weekend.

We are all grateful here.  By this time in a normal year, our annual rainfall would be much higher than th 13.74 inches that one local weather station is reporting.  Last year we had a storm in January that gave us 7.09 inches all itself.  All this is to say that the rain is very, very welcome.  We drove by one of the local reservoirs yesterday and I have never seen it so low.

Let it rain!  Let it rain!  Let it rain!
