and it rained, and rained, and rained



When it rains in Louisiana, it rains HARD. The air is all water and the ground is all water and everything shimmers silver. There is a splash haze three feet high. Here are some shots from Sunday's downpour, when my yard was submerged.




The garden (and the mosquitos) loved it. We had more of the same today.



It was beautiful.

  1. I gotta say I'm darn tired of the rain! And today's humidity almost did me in at the nursery. But come summer, we'll be wishing for that lovely rain.
    btw, the job is fine but getting hotter by the minute. :-) I haven't been to your neck of the woods in some time but I'll try to give you a call next time I'm there. Great photos of the rain!

  3. Our last 5 weekends in a row have been incredibly wet, super unusual for here. "Global weirding," I heard somewhere. But perhaps that's normal for there?

  4. WOW. Coming from a state with an annual rainfall of 7" per entire year (NM), this is an amazing sight to a former desert dweller. Would you consider your state to be a tropical rain forest zone? Sure looks like it.

    I love rainy weather. This must've been awesome to see firsthand.
