Our Location: Near Tonopah, Arizona
I woke this morning to the sound of pitter patter on the roof. The forecasted rain arrived right on schedule and I could see that the brightness in the sky wasn’t blue or bright, more of a dull iron grey colour. A phone call from my Insurance Agent back home at 7:30 AM had me pushing myself out of bed. No issues just a few questions. Those answered I started doing my morning routine.
|You can see the water laying on the ground.|
|A little bit more over here in this side of our yard.|
I can tell you the rest of the day was spent lounging around looking out the windows as they steamed over and unsteamed only to steam over again. The quick change in outside temperatures was like a roller coaster all day. The rain came, it stopped, it came back and stopped again. You get the idea right? At one point there was water laying on the ground and before long it was gone only to reappear and disappear. You get the idea. I read a little while, annoyed Riley for a little while, read some more, had a nap, etc. You know how it goes. The clouds shifted and the sky brightened, lines of blue appeared here and there but soon the clouds covered the sky once again and the day once again loomed dark and ugly. Thunder could be heard off in the distance but no lightning was around, or at least we never witnessed any.
|A small patch but it was gone within a couple of minutes.|
|The water is gone again.|
A call to my sister, we chatted for about an hour and it was nice to catch up. They are both feeling better although Rick is still not feeling great. He is a diabetic and having a hard time with his sugar right now. It is a never ending struggle for some and not so hard for others.
|Looks brighter over there.... maybe, kind of...perhaps. No, just wishful thinking.|
With a long, dark dreary day behind us, we have another one to look forward to tomorrow but after that it appears to be heading in an upward direction. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you had an enjoyable day where ever you and doing whatever you have been doing. A few photos taken from the door step today.
Until next time.. take care, be safe,
|It's just dreary looking out here. Cold, damp and miserable but warm inside and we're waiting for better things.|
