Weather or not

The sun showed up this morning,

the clouds came after noon,

the rain is pouring as I write,

I'll post the next change soon.

Update 9/18/06, 5:30 p.m.

The rain stuck around for more than 24 hours, except for brief respites every now and then. It was raining when I went to work this morning and still raining when I left the office at 5:00 p.m. today. Twenty minutes later, though, I arrived home to this:

These vivid shades of blue were worth the wait.


  1. What gorgeous photos Velvet, love the sun ray one. More of the same please :)

  2. i think it is fall here.

  3. Nice poem! I wonder what happened after the rain...

  4. Glad to see the weather's as consistent there as it is this side of the lake!

  5. I wanted rain so Sunday afternoon I talked Astrid and Ingrid into going out in the front yard and doing a "rain dance". Each made up words to a song and ran around the yard hollering them. It started to rain...and i know they think they caused it. We believe more strongly when young. Old age bring our doubts to surface. Rain is gone here, but my world seems cleaner.

  6. Thanks, Sandy. I find sun rays so much more interesting than just plain sunshine.

    Patsy, I WISH it were fall here.

    Janet, thanks. I'll post an update just for you.

    TC, weather, weather everywhere -- we can't get away from it.

    Sweet Sister, that's cute. Tell those girls not to dance quite so hard next time; they get us wet clear down in Louisiana.

  7. What a treat, Velvet, your poetry and photography. I love that spectacular blue sky!

  8. Thanks, Sunflower. That blue sky looked even more beautiful in person, especially after so much rain.
