Sure Enough

Sure enough, that lunar halo was an accurate predictor. I have seen rings around the moon before, but last night's rainbow was the largest I have ever witnessed. Rain has been falling all day. Steady, cold, relentless, huddle in front of the fire kind of rain. Stay in the barn and eat hay kind of rain. Except for the ducks and the sheep. They didn't seem to mind at all.

I certainly am glad for the firewood harvesting we did the other day. Looks like we will be enjoying the woodstove for a few days.

Two inches of rain! But we have needed the moisture so I can't complain. I wish I had seen the moon ring. said...

Two inches! We certainly have a full pond. All this moisture will give us great benefit next spring. I wish you could have seen it. I still wonder how I managed to look out the window at such a late hour to see such a sight.

I missed the ring too. My daughter's school friend told her about it and we didn't really believe him but I guess he wasn't fibbing after all!

Oh, the weather has been terrible. Really putting a damper on my riding. I'm also glad we're stocked up on wood. And I just made a pecan pie. Not much better than that.
