The Thunder Rolls

Rainbow Over Wheat

Day after day, it seems, rain and thunder storms are in the forecast. And I am not complaining! As I highlighted on Tuesday, we are so close to being completely out of a drought that has lasted over four years. So needless to say, rain several weeks in a row is a welcome sight no matter how many plans it changes and how many times I have to wash muddy jeans!

Yesterday we ended the day with 1″ in the gauge and today it has played around for a bit but as I sit here working on this post at 10:30 tonight, the thunder sounds more and more like it means business.

On my way home this afternoon, I noticed a rainbow so I took a few pictures with my phone, planning to post them to Instagram later on. But then, to my luck, I remembered I had my camera in the car! So as soon as I got on our gravel road I hopped out and took a handful of pictures. I wouldn’t be as lucky with my footwear, however, as I was with my camera. So if you can imagine, I was trudging around in my heels back and forth on the gravel road trying to get the perfect shot. Thank goodness no one drove by!Rainbow Over Corn

And, boy, do I love some of these pictures! Hopefully I can continue to take advantage of these beautiful scenes God has given me and fill up my empty picture frames!

P.S. my Flickr page has been updated with even more!
