We've had some glorious days of sun, with enough scattered showers to give us a gorgeous rainbow. (These photos were taken at 6 am.)
If you look closely, you can see a faint double rainbow as well.
Nice way to start the day...
...and nice way to end it, too. Here's our wheat field in the setting sun, which finally dried out. (Photo taken through a dirty window; sorry for the spots.)
In the interim, a neighbor decided to get some discing done while he could. His land is sloped and therefore drains better than ours, but up until now the fields have been too wet even at his place.
Ahhh, there's nothing prettier than farm land.
Everyone took advantage of the break in the weather.
Well, that all changed today as massive rain moved in. (Our neighbor was smart to disc while he could.)
Don and I went to pick up some hay from a farmer a few miles away, and the rough road to his barn was nearly awash.
The windshield while driving home...
Here's the wheat field this afternoon, once more soaked.
The rain came down so hard it made bubbles in the puddles.
We buttoned up all the beasties early. They were glad to get out of the wet! Lots more rain expected tonight so we've battened down the hatches.
In the middle of a dry hot summer, we'll look back at this weather with longing...
