I’m not sure if anyone has noticed any ark building going on, but the sand trap on the golf course behind our house is currently also a water hazard.
What happened to Fort Collins while we were gone? Colorado is supposed to have a semi-arid climate (a.k.a. LOTS of sunny days), but I’m pretty sure we’ve had rain EVERY DAY for weeks. Here’s the 30th of April . . . ↓ . . . and here’s the 3rd of May . . . ↓
Then yesterday, it rained so much the green had a stream running across it. This is unusual enough here, that the city workers are apparently not adequately supplied with rain gear. These guys seem to be sharing one set as they tend to the golf course. The pants guy does the kneeling tasks like changing the hole position and the jacket guy . . . well, mostly walks around.
On the plus side, the trees are happy . . .
I, on the other hand, am finding my new-found appreciation for rain sorely tried. Not even ONE Rio Patio afternoon since we’ve been back (see the photo in my “About Me” sidebar), and that is one of my favorite things. Grrr. I do love the green, and I’ve found a bit of blue for variety’s sake . . . →
I’m like a kid during the month of December, who knows Christmas is coming, but hates that it seems to be taking FOREVER. I know the sunshine is coming, and the Friday afternoons at Rio, and the sunny Harley rides, and the barbecues on the deck, so no more whining!
Instead, here are a few thoughts about weather:
In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours. ∼Mark Twain
Here’s a REALLY positive attitude . . .
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. ∼John Ruskin
. . . and a few encouraging souls. . .
Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. ∼James M. Barrie
A good laugh is like sunshine in the house. ∼William Makepeace Thackeray
. . . and one comedian . . .
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night. ∼Steve Martin
Here’s wishing you smiles and laughter, no matter the weather!
