As you can see below, our heatwave came to an abrupt end Wednesday evening. Since then, we’ve had well over 7″(18cm) of rain. We’re going to have a nice day today (Mon) then back to the 90s on Tuesday and then more rain. Oh well, this is New England.
Wednesday June 30 – Hot and humid at 6:11 pm.
48 minutes later and we have had. A drop of 26 degrees100°f (38°c) to 74°f (23°c) 1.15″ of rain 206 lightning strikes
The rain stopped early Sunday morning. Since we hadn’t walked for two days, I took Maddie for a walk between showers.
The daylilies didn’t seem to want to open.
There we go. Open and very wet.
Mushrooms are popping up in the yard.
Not the best day to go for a drive.
I promised Maddie that if it wasn’t raining we could walk.
It wasn’t raining when we left for our walk, but everything was wet.
A new blossom is breaking out on the cactus. Not the weather it was expecting.
When we got to the park, the birds were trying to squeeze a game in.
“Pay attention guys! We can win this.”
“Come on guys. It’s starting to rain. If we can hold the lead, we’ll beat those crows.”
“We showed those crows!”
The crows are watching what might be their last time at bat. The little birds are ahead by one run and it’s starting to rain.
“The game is gonna be called for rain. We’re gonna lose.”
“I can’t believe those little guys beat us again.”
“Alright, let’s get out of here. There’s always next week.”
When we got home we sat for a while before the rain started again.
I see you Smokey. Please don’t get any closer.
Smokey got his peanut.
“Could I get in on that peanut deal?”
And, for River. When the rain eased up a bit, one of our bunnies decided to munch. River will appreciate this, it turns out bunnies like to eat quince bushes. Can these little guys get any better?
“Hmmm I like quince”
“These guys won’t mind if I snack on this leaf.”
“Munch, munch, munch…”
I hope you all had a great weekend. If you’re in the US, and this is a long weekend for you, I hope you have had better weather than we have. Apologies to those in the west who would enjoy four days of steady rain.
