Rain, Wind and Thunder in the Canyon

Yesterday, the rains finally came (first rain since May) accompanied by ferocious winds, thunder, lightning,  and even a fire.

My empty trashcans were tossed around together with lids and tumbleweeds.

Yes, that's another fire in the middle of the picture. It was soon extinguished. And isn't it weird that with all that rain, the sky was still blue on one side of the house?

I knew this morning would be fresh and glorious, so I grabbed my dog and my camera and set out for the mail boxes. There are always puddles here after it rains or snows.

No water in the creek.

Just a lot of mustard tumble weeds.

Angel enjoyed her walk.

While I enjoyed the fresh, green of the rabbit brush.

And the mountain views. I see Angel's ears sticking up in the lower left corner. How funny!

Somethng was wrong with my Blogger this morning. I tried it in Explorer and in AOL and it took me forever to put this blog together. I'm going to do some maintenance this afternoon. So if I don't have time to visit your blogs, it's because my computer is acting up.

Have a great day!


  1. Rain! How wonderful! It looks like it cleared up the air for you! Great pictures! I really love your area! Angel looks like she's enjoying the walk! Do you ever walk Soldier, or is he too much for you?

  2. Sharon: I'm glad you like it here. Soldier used to walk every day. I can't walk him now. He's too powerful and will go after critters and could drag me down. He's my motivation for my PT. I say by October 1, he'll be walking again. That's my goal.

  3. Wow....that rain was a welcome sight, I'm sure. Back when my daughter was little, we got a pouring rain. Except, it rained in the front yard but was sunny and dry in the back! I'll never forget that and it's been 25 years. The mountains must be a beautiful vision in the mornings or evenings.


  4. Ah-h-h.....fresh air for you Inger.
    Great pics! You live in really 'wild' country, don't you?

  5. Liz: Weird, isn't it, this weather you get in the deserts?

    Jim: Yep, this is the wild west! I'm glad you like my pics, that is motivating to hear.

  6. Such beautiful photos - you certainly live in a magnificent part of this world, Inger. I'm glad that you've had some rain ....

  7. Yes...the refreshing splatter of rain on the window pane.
    Likewise...blogspot has been living it's own life lately...weird glitches in the comment section of Sophie's blog...nothing a good lick couldn't handle...really!


Thanks for leaving a comment.. ~~ Inger
