I Wonder if the Rain Is Over

I just returned from a walk to the mailbox. As I walked, I noticed some of the effects of the last night. Birdbaths had been filled.

I took the photo.

There were puddles next to the curbs. The ground where my sprinklers never reach was thoroughly soaked. The plants looked happy to finally have a good, healthy drink. rationing has been very hard on them. These flowers belong to my neighbor farther down my block.

I took the photo.

What I noticed most, though, were the remaining and the sun, which was playing hide and seek. Some parts of the sky were bright blue with white fluffy clouds. Others seemed to predict more rain, such as the gray layer in the intro photo and the one below.

I took the photo.

What do you think? Is more rain on the way today or tonight? Rainstorms often begin at night here.

That garden and grass looks pretty healthy for a water shortage.

Nice photos. I particularly like the ones with the ominous-looking rain clouds!

We had a very usual sky today with bright fluffy white clouds drifting through the sky arm in arm with pitch black ones and after hard rain in the night, the sun came out and we had some beautiful golfing weather. After I came in, though, some other golfers got surprised by one of those sudden storms where water starts falling in buckets from the sky and then after a few minutes clears up and the sun comes out again and all that is left of it is the puddles.

I am hoping for more rain for you and the folks in the drought-stricken areas. It can take quite a bit of precipitation to begin to make a dent in the drought conditions.

I like your birdbath - pretty unique. Mine is on a pedestal which you may have seen - I have uploaded it somewhere Yes The clouds do give an indication it might rain again.

That's the neighbor's garden and lawn. Their sprinklers must work better than mine.

I love photographing all kinds of clouds. Rain clouds are especially interesting.

Something similar happened here this afternoon. I had come back from my walk and was working around the house when we had another brief storm As far as I know, there are still some lingering clouds.

Do you mean he ones around my neighbor's birdbath?

It would be so nice to see water return to the river and Atascadero Lake, but it will take a lot more rain for that to happen. It would be a blessing if we could have even one good rain a week to help the trees and the vineyards.

I wish I had a birdbath. The one in the photo is in my neighbor's yard.

It does not matter. You do have a birdbath where birds visit and I am sure you can see them from your house! :)

Yes. I really like it . Tomorrow I am going to start to make one.
