Look, Up In The Sky...It's a Bird, a Plane, a----?

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Rain cloud! Yes, there are real live, honest to goodness rain clouds soaring over the area at this time. It has been a long, long time since that has happened.

We are not supposed to get any precipitation but I think prayers are beginning to work as we are getting closer to having some actual, measurable rain. I could even smell moisture in the air at 4 am when I took the dogs out!

The neighborhood wildlife is out and about, most likely enjoying the cool temperatures. It only got into the sixties and the wind of course is blowing like there is no tomorrow. I had to cut my walk short with Spanky this evening because when we got to the end of the driveway there was a coyote in the middle of the road. Broad daylight...not a great sign as rabies is ever prevalent in the area.

Well, here's hoping everyone had a great day and is planning a better tomorrow. I must get back to studying microbiology and then to bed.

    We had some yesterday (Wed evening to Thurs morning) in Albuquerque. The measurable amount was .5 inches, but I think I got more at my house.

Last summer, I was walking my 10 pounds pups out in a less developed area - heard some coyotes. My brain-damaged little warrior, the Papillion Samurai, barked and growled back. My Pom Shalako, wanted me to pick her up and haul fanny!

    emoticon for the rain for you. We had rain all day and they say it's going to rain for the next 7 days. We don't need any more. But, I hope you enjoy your rain. Hugs Irene

    Rain clouds outside are such a great site to see! Hope they actually bring us some moisture.
Enjoy the microbiology LOL!

    Hope you get some rain soon, too! We're finally getting some and had a bunch today, along with a tornado and some hail in one part of town. Weird weather this spring, everywhere it seems!

    Gosh - we just finally had the rain subside & we've enjoyed a whole day dry sunshine. It's funny how we both wish for different things, isn't it?
