Here's Why (Weather)

Given my post yesterday, some may have thought I was kidding about the weather here.  So, as further evidence, I give you these photos; taken last night around 8:30 p.m.   No rain was predicted, yet this front came sweeping in from our northwest and caught us by surprise.

A few minutes later, you can see that the main wall of the front is going to sweep just to our north (again!) and that the sun is now shining in the direct west. 

On the plus side, as the front went by, the setting sun and the back side of the wall combined on the southeast side of the house into a startling mix of perfect pastel color.

And finished off with a double rainbow to our direct south as the sun set.  Can't ask for more than that.

Except, of course, rain.  We got a sprinkle, enough to make the pavement look wet.  And that was all she wrote.  Wamego, the next proper town east, had a bit of a blow, with a few trees down.


  1. Yes, we were assured we in Tulsa were to get 2 inches of rain a couple of nights ago. Hah! Nada! At least you all got a beautiful scene to look at.

  2. We received 2 inches in an hour an a half on Wednesday. We need the rain, but not that much at once. With the clay soil we have here, it just runs off. At least yesterday we got a nice, steady drizzle most of the day. Now I look forward to drying out for a bit so I can actually get some work in the gardens done!
