Even in fog, the trees glow (6WS)


rained all day yesterday, we had thunder storms all night long, and it poured--I'm in hopes that 1) we still have a driveway left, and 2) the small rivers will start to run again.    With luck, not down the middle of the driveway.  It has been known to happen.

  2. well, yeah. But it's lasted amazingly long this year. I suspect the drought had a lot to do with that. Its like the final gift, before winter rolls over us.

  3. we're engulfed here this morning, too, JT, & expecting the same rain. Maybe 1st snow overnight, they say. Leaves most gone now, though, and the remainder, um, tenuous.

  4. It was foggy here yesterday morning and this morning, but you are right the trees still glow in their glorious Autumn colours :-D

    1. Im amazed there's a leaf left, we had thunder and hard hard rain, but the maples are still clinging, still a bit of 'lit from within'. Glorious covers it nicely.

  5. The weather elves say we got 3-4 inches of rain overnight (I can believe it), the road has survived and the brook at the end of the road is now running again after a very dry summer. Life is good.

    And snow for you. Ours is out there somewhere, but not yet. It's still wet, still annoying the cats, far as Im concerned it can rain from now to Thanksgiving.

    1. Thanks, Dawn. It was a bit bizarre, wandering around out there barefoot. It was warm enough, and not raining then.
      We figured it was about a 30 foot visiblity just then, and solid. It's fun to take photos in, but I'd hate to drive in it.

  7. We too are finally getting some fall color. And some blessed rain today.

  8. Good, on both counts. You did kinda get cheated when the hurricane whizzed out to sea, though. Right now there is no such thing as too much rain. Only almost enough.

  9. Well, thank you, Mlissabeth. It's nice to have willing subjects, too...

  10. Thanks, Elaine. I can see a lovely stubborn rock maple outside my window here and it's just not giving up.

  11. Something about the fog is like poetry, indirect and interpretational. Right now, we have wind to contend with here.

  12. Agreed, all sorts of things can loom up out of a heavy fog, real or imagined, it's up to you to interpret it.

    Five inches of rain in two days (yikes) and the road held up, Im amazed; and like you, we have wind, a sharp reminder that it's now time to tighten up the windows a bit more. Wintah is comin'.

    It's also a weather changer, too. No more balmy stuff. At least for awhile.
