A Photo a Week Challenge: Your Weather Today

Nancy Merrill says:  This week is all about the weather where you live.

I took this yesterday on my new iPhone 8 Plus! We were coming home from the vet’s office. I don’t know that I have ever seen such a brilliant rainbow — and a double one at that. I’m afraid the photo does not do it justice! We’ve been having so much rain now that the temps have gone up some but yesterday the sun came out and voila!

Almost Wordless Wednesday

Raccoon in ink on driveway! (?) 😀

Update on Midge:  I want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes. It has worked! The doctor said the x-ray report from the radiologist shows no mass and nothing broken. Apparently, she has somehow received a soft tissue injury or perhaps a torn ligament. We are proceeding with a course of additional anti-inflammatory pills and adding some antibiotic. I ask for continued prayers that she will heal quickly. She is only 6.5 pounds and it breaks my heart to see her limping around. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can read the initial story HERE.

Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful…

I just love this big old pine tree next to the driveway — oh, wait, what driveway??

Another side view of no driveway.  See that snow blob on the left? That’s some sort of evergreen tree that usually stands about 12-14 feet high. Today it’s hung over with the weight of the world. You can see the small picture below taken almost two years ago. Not to worry, though, hubby went out and knocked the snow off and it’s beginning to straighten up again.

When I was taking the picture of this tree in the back (I call it a snowball tree), one of the birds must have landed on one of the branches because all of a sudden there was an “avalanche” of snow!

We’re keeping these little guys fed as best we can.

Gas logs for heat when the power goes out.

Well, this isn’t exactly how I had planned on spending the weekend! We can’t get out and no one can get in.  Even the post office and deliveries wouldn’t come up the driveway. Of course, it makes it harder when you can’t even tell there is a driveway under there somewhere. Hopefully, most of this will be gone by Monday!  Here’s another great reason why food and water storage are so important!
