First Spring Pictures

This evening I will share the first pictures that I have taken this spring.

First Rose Bud, Spring Rose Bud, SpringThe first picture I took this morning was of a bud on my Mr. Lincoln rose bush.

You can see that it is just starting to open.

Rainy Commute, Commute, Spring RainThis afternoon the rain came and it is sure nice to have some spring rain.

A lot of people were scared at the office today when we had a lightning strike very near to our building. The strike was very loud and it was immediately followed by rolling thunder. It was interesting to hear the reaction from the native Californians who have rarely experienced thunder storms.

Windshield Wipers, Altamont, commuteIt is a pretty drive over the Altamont in spring as the hills are nice and green. However, the view was obscured by a very wet windshield. Good thing I have some good wipers.

We will hopefully get more rain tomorrow. We will take any we get as we slowly recover from the drought from the last few years.
