Unusual Rain Here, and Some Simple Graphics

Banner Haus News and Musings

We are setting records here for rain. An inch and a fourth in one day, and five days of clouds, with five more expected. Very odd! But there are wildflowers blooming! By the hundreds! All along the railroad tracks. Hurrah!

    I love that little gal reminding one and all when Mother's Day is! And somehow I don't think your cloudy days are what you were referring to when you said the sun was going to go all wonky, is it? If nothing else, I bet all of that rain is making those wildflowers extremely happy!

  • Dawn

    Thanks for the reminder!

    I think you would like that movie Holly. Did you watch the trailer? I liked it more than my daughter did. It really wasn't just a kid's movie. I thought I was going to have to go back and see it alone 'cause my daughter needed to use the restroom just as the climax was starting. We ran there and ran back and still got to see enough of the conclusion to make me happy. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD.

    Great graphics today! Wish we could have some of your rain. Our pollen count is so high!

    Hi Holly, So glad you are getting rain. Its much needed here my dear.

    Oh Mother 's day is that early. We don' t celebrate it in India, but many western minded people ( like me ) do.

  • Doris Sturm

    Wow - all that rain - we had a lot too and I think that's why I'm smelling mold in my apartment and it's giving me a headache, only I can't figure out where it's coming from :-(

    I love today's graphics - thank you, I will post the Mother's Day one on my blog to help remind everyone ;-)

    Have a wonderful day, m'lady!

    Wish it would rain here - one, we need it, and two, it'd give me a break from the burners.

    Say. Why in the world was there a brand new bike in the trash compactor at Walmart? You've had me curious about that one!

    Hope you're having a nice Sunday.

    OWG, Rosey here,

    Hmmmm the weather this year gets curiouser and curiouser!!! perhaps it's all because of this being an El Nino year??? It certainly will be interesting to see the change in the weather patterns from the volcano eruption in Iceland, yes???

    Be sure to press a few of those fleeting short lived wildflowers!
