Back and Bows
Arriving back home I quickly discovered our back yard is a mess. A neighbor did a good job of keeping our front yard mowed which I appreciate. But the back yard has grass eight inches tall and weeds everywhere. It rained daily while we were gone and has rained everyday since we have been home. One day I was able to get about half the back yard mowed before the rain started . . . . again. I have never been fond of using an electric lawn mower in a rainstorm.
Besides the rain, we have had a few hailstorms and a tornado warning or watch most days. According to the news, there has been $161 million dollars worth of damage in the last five days.
This is not common weather for our part of the country. Some people blame it on global warming, others on stimulus money coming out of Washington. I think it’s both.
However, there have been rewards. Several days we have had great rainbows. I’ve taken several pictures but the camera just doesn’t do them justice.
