Welcome, El Nino

El Nino made a grand entrance.


It rained and rained and rained.


The dry creek turned into a fast-moving and swollen stream.


We all got soaked, but no one minded.


Because the heavens smiled on us.


Welcome, El Nino. Welcome.

  1. some places really needed the rain. hope all is well. we are having a warm winter here in Michigan.. Momwithoutpaws is glad

  2. I’d be happy to send you some of our rain if I knew how to do it! Seems like we can’t even go a full week of just sun without another 3-4 days of rain to spoil our fun in the yard.

  3. In more than 10 years as a landscaper I have never been rained out more than 2 days in a row – and that was maybe once, maybe twice. This week 4.5 days. Never seen anything like it! Yes we need the rain… but for the whole week? Whatever happened to once or twice a week, after 2:30pm, or overnights or Sundays? Not too much to ask.

      1. It’s OK for it to deliver, just not put me out of work! I left plenty of time slots open for the El Nino deluge! Daily even! I’ll even throw out that 4th Monday and Thursday of the months are clear for downpours 🙂
