Late Year Walks

Tonight I decided to share some pictures from some of my recent walks. I get out and walk at least a couple miles each day. It has been a bit more difficult to get my walks in during the last week as we have had a lot of rain. Some days I have gone out and walked in the drizzle.

I will be glad when it is not so dark at quitting time each day.

We really do need the rain, but not all at once like we are getting now. There is a flood watch in effect for the rest of the year. The city is even giving out sandbags as there are some low lying areas of town that get flooded when we have heavy rain.

Tomorrow I will have to watch for the gaps in the rain and get my walk in as soon as possible as it is supposed to rain most of the day.
