Overnight Wednesday into Thursday we had POURING rain. You could hear it roaring on the roof of the house. Fortunately, by morning, when it was time for a walk, the rain had moved on.

We headed in our usual direction on the W & OD trail , just as the sun was rising. The heavy rains had caused some run-off erosion and the left-over water was being lit by the sun. I liked the way the water twisted and turned through the gravel.

Here are a couple of shots, taken a few minutes apart....

Cool tones before the sun broke through....

Warm tones when the sun found a hole in the clouds....

And finally, just to give you an idea of how much rain we truly got.....Here's a bench down by the big lake in the neighborhood. Obviously it was not installed with it's legs in the lake! The water had gotten so deep at one point that the bench was under water. Look at all that debris.

Looks comfy, no?

Have a great weekend, Everyone!

  5. We got a lot of rain this past week as well. Except then it froze that night. Our rivulets are all solid.

  6. Wow! That's a lot of water! Love those images of the water snaking down the trail, though I imagine it caused a lot of erosion.
