After the thunderstorm yesterday I waited for the rain to finally end. I then headed out to the yard to take a look around.
I first saw some snails on the sidewalk. I usually only see them at night after the sprinklers run.
My roses had lot of raindrops on them, so had to take some pictures. Raindrops on roses are among my favorite things.
As I walked back toward the door I found that I was leaving footprints. Walking in wet grass will definitely give you wet feet. Not sure where my pinky toe was 🙂
I also had raindrops on my agapanthus scapes.
The wind also blew a lot of leaves off the trees and they landed in some of my plants. I like the little drops of water here.
The sun was soon shining brightly and I had interesting patterns on the slats of the blinds.
Unfortunately I could not take a picture of the way it felt after the rain. Nice and cool and fresh smelling.
It is rare to get rain this late in the year here in California, and even rarer to have a thunderstorm.
However, the weather has been very unpredictable this year. Two days ago it was well over 100 and setting daily records and today thunderstorms.
It was real interesting to get a lightning proximity warning on my phone. I did not know that these existed. It seldom storms like this in California.
The rain was coming down very heavy and the thunder was rumbling in the sky. I thought I was back in Kansas.
Here you can see the rain a little better. It was coming down in streams at times.
We even had a little bit of hail. I first heard it hitting on the windows. Luckily it was only very small.
It was nice however to look out the window and see the rain. Also to hear the thunder. I really do miss thunderstorms in the summer.
Are you having unseasonal weather where you live?
