January Rain

Rain today, unusual this time of year. An all-day, slow-soaker that deepened the color of the weeds and the remnants of grasses, made them richer and more variegated in their tans, reds, browns, and grays. A watercolor painter's delight! The usual fare about now would be howling blizzards and eight foot drifts. No pictures today. The steady drizzle did not encourage such. Maybe tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I shall enjoy the 45+° respite and refrain from complaining about wet drizzles down the back of my neck. As the kids used to say, it's all good.

We had torrential rain, thunderous winds, and then snow, all one right after the other. I'm ready for some calm blue sky days, myself.
