Rain, Rain, Go Away...Come back next winter!

(picture taken from our porch)

Around this time last year, our heavy blankets, jackets, and sweaters, were packed away. The air conditioner was on and I was wearing a short sleeved t-shirt and shorts.

This year, the only thing packed away still are the tank tops and shorts! We've had a few days of sunshine, and most days, its either cold, or rainy, or both.

(At least my plants look healthy!)

Last summer our city of Folsom was experiencing a drought. The past several months we've had so much rain, that the Folsom Dam has been continually draining water from its dam for three months.

I guess the upside from all this, is that we're definitely no longer in a drought, and I don't have to turn on the sprinklers.

I hope summer comes here soon- I'm so ready!

It's been nice the past two days. My AC has actually been on for a good part of the day today!

It actually looks very inviting! Sometimes I get more done when the weather is lousy!

Oh man. I HEAR YA. THe whole time I was visiting my family in Utah, it was below temp. and mostly rain.
Then as soon as I left, it got warm there and the rain followed me home.
Yesterday was the ONLY good day we had in a long time. I was in heaven...then today, chilly, windy, and overcast all day.
I better get SOME summer, as the mere thought of enduring another long, cold winter is frightening.

the only UPSIDE, everything is nice and green, and some places really needed the water.
Crazy weather patterns all over the country.

We're in a big thunder storm now. It's been so hot here.

And your plants do look super healthy!!
