This weekend we woke up to a wonderful storm that lasted for hours. Rain and lots of it fell and soaked our parched dry earth. The air smelled clean and fresh. The grass went from a yellow to a deep green in a matter of minutes, at least that is how it seemed to me. Is is not unusual for people to run to their windows to witness the clear liquid falling to earth. It's a celebration and reason to be happy. It is uncommon.
When I went on my bike ride today, I snapped some pictures of this event to share with you. Have you ever seen rain come down in streaks like this? The sky can be dark, pink, blue and shiny, yet there are rain streaks off in the distance. A beautiful site to see.
If you look closely you can see many colors in the sky.
Rain, sunshine and blue skies all at once.
Rain falling in streaks, it's beautiful to see. Like a drawing on paper.
It's hard to believe this is a park and not a pond. All the wildlife come out for a drink. Lots of birds taking baths and filling their tummys.
We don't often see the parks with so much water. There is grass under all of this.
