Watery Wednesday - It Rained.... Again !

Well .. the weatherman said, last night, that the thunderstorms moving through the area, would stay the other side of I-80.

(Click on any photo to enlarge)

After looking out my front door and seeing the above sight, I wasn't too convinced about his prediction. He'd have seen the same sight if he'd stuck his head outside the studio door, as the TV station is just a few blocks from us.

Within minutes, the heavens opened and someone up there started sloshing large buckets of water at us ... well .. at least that's what it looked like !

Made for a pretty sight this morning though. Most of the plants had sparkling diamonds of water all over them..

have a great WW all :-)

Lots of rain here, too, lately! It has sure greened things up nicely. Great shots! :)

That's hilarious that the station is so close yet his 'prediction' was sooo off!

It is pouring here as we speak! Hopefully my flowers will look as pretty as yours when it's over!

We too have had a lot of rain lately but it dose wonders for the lawn and gardens.
Your yellow rose looks amazing with the rain drops on it.
Thanks for visiting, Karen... have a blissfully dry day.

Isn't it interesting how those of us who live in places without much rain delight in it so much! Nifty post ... love the droplets on the leaves and rose ... the patch of blue in the cloudy skies.
Hugs and blessings,

Is that a rose? It's gorgeous.

We have been under all kinds of drought restrictions for the past several years...and it looks like they are finally about to ease our watering bans.
