We have had a rainy week here. On Tuesday the forecasters promised the rain would end by Thursday and we would enjoy a sunny weekend. We were ready for that since we had more than seven inches of rain in a five day period. They did mention a tropical depression in the Atlantic. By Wednesday the depression was a serious hurricane headed for the coast. Then an unexpected front swept over Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina and stalled, dumping us with more and more rain along with flash flooding. So almost all of North Carolina is having heavy rainfall; the west due to the front and the east due to the hurricane. Our thoughts go out to those in harm's way.
Lucy does not like usually like the rain. But surprisingly she does enjoy running in the rain at the park. My husband takes her there (if it's not a total downpour) while I put towels in the dryer to warm up so we can get her dry quickly. When it is raining, she tends to patrol the house, going from window to window to look out.
Here she looks out a dining room window.
During a respite from the rain we went out on the front porch.
Then she decided that her cozy bed might be the best idea.
Our thoughts are still with the refugees fleeing for their lives. And for the victims and families of yet another senseless shooting in our country. Will we never learn?
We've got company coming so I'll be taking another two-week break.
Today's quote is an old Irish blessing from an unknown author:
May you always have walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE
AND STAY SAFE
