Another trip to Wonderland

August 16, 2012

We went to Wonderland again yesterday.

We had debated going on Thursday this week, but the weather forecast kept changing.

There was a low chance of rain on Wednesday, and a small amount, if any.

We ended up deciding to go on Wednesday.

Later in the afternoon, we noticed an ominous looking cloud in the sky.

We decided to go out to the van to eat our supper.  As we started to head out, I felt a couple of drops.

As we were unloading stuff from the stroller into the back of the van, it started to rain a bit.  Then it rained a lot.

We sat in the van for about half an hour while it rained.  And rained.  And rained.

We saw lots of people heading out while we sat and waited for the rain to stop.

Once it was done, we headed back in and stayed for about two more hours.

At the end of it all, it was a good day.  In spite of the rain.



August rain

August 9, 2012

After a long stretch of dry weather, we finally got some decent rain today.

The forecast calls for rain throughout the weekend, which will be a relief.  There is no doubt that it is too late for some crops, hopefully it is not a total wipeout for everything.

It’s been a really funny year.

Summerlike weather in March.  Really wet for a while in the spring, but then dry for weeks.  There have been some scattered thunderstorms, but not much relief has been provided.

The rain has brought relief from the drought, and hope for things to come.
