Okay…Someone Turn Off The Rain

We’ve had tropical conditions lately.  Very hot but also very, very humid.  Then it rains and becomes very, very steamy!

We were all blaming this guy.  Look more rainstorms behind him.  Not Cool Heaty!

 

The Thunder and Lightning was just what was left of Hurricane Alberto.

Sharkhead is really finding this weather a bummer.  He has big plans for the Summer of M&S.  He’s trying to be the star and all the rain is hampering his 15 mins. of fame 🙂

Jimmy and Eddie had fun and to them that is all that mattered.  So I guess it was a win after all, lol!

Call Noah…It’s Been Raining…A LOT!

It’s been raining for the past two days and it’s looking not to stop anytime soon.  Well okay, if you get technical, they call for Sunday to be the last day.  Sure…take the drama out of my post!   Just kidding.

Not to worry, the Gnomes are a hearty breed.  The Roomie is too.  She likes the rain better than the sunshine.  Bjorn says it’s because she prefers to be pasty not rosy.

Anyway, Caleb, Hubert, Chipper and me went to the forest for a little communing with nature.  I got to do some bird watching while the others played in the stream.

It was a perfect afternoon of getting rained on, beautiful flora and fauna and just being outside 🙂

Hubert Was Lost

But it’s okay because we found him.  He arrived in December but then decided to hide from us all.

He loves SnapChat.  Ellie introduced him to the app.  It’s been his obsession!

We had a rainstorm the other day and we got to see this beautiful rainbow!  It made us think of Corin…you ’cause he’s a leprechaun, lol.

We had no doubt that Chipper loved rainstorms.  Gnomes are odd little creatures!

I think he and Mr. Nigel Murray are just thrilled it is Spring!

Summer of Barry – The One Where It Rained A Lot

We’ve had very heavy rains the last 3 days.  I went down to the Creek to see what it looked like.

It’s muddy and the water is very high on the banks.

It was beautiful in its own way.  I’m just glad we don’t live near a body of water.

April Showers Brings…Flooding

Early this morning we were all awoken by the sound of a torrential downpour of rain.  It was still dark and very miserable outside.  All a part of Spring.

This afternoon Mick and I went down the Crick to see what it looked like all swollen.

Yes it is weird to say Crick when it is a Creek but when in Roman…yada, yada, yada.

It finally stopped raining and the “CRICK” looked kind of cool.  It also made me glad that I gave up living in the Forest.  It’s wet and mossy here.

The trees are starting to bloom which is a good sign that Shady Days are coming closer and closer.

The Roomie loves the rain.  Probably because she’s never had to live outside after a rain.  It’s damp.  ‘Nuff said!

Curling and Rain

Curling is awesome.  The Gold Medal round didn’t disappoint.  The Canadians were on top form.

That’s Kaitlyn getting ready to make the magic happen!

Sweden put up a good fight but it came down to one mistake that let the Canadians in the door.

We were having nothing but snow every week and then today came with its 58 degree temperatures and the moisture wasn’t snow this time…it was rain.  Lots and lots of rain.

The big talk is if it will make all the snow go away…just in time for the snow that is supposed to arrive next week once our mini heat wave ends 😦  Spring is taunting us!  Not Nice!
