Will the rain ever stop...?

Strained Relationship with Nature…


Snowing in Ohio and points west,

But it’s been beautiful here all day,

Now its almost 4:30 pm and it is dark and rainy,

Puts on my relationship with Nature a bit of a “strainy…”


Weather here fit for the ducks,

In fact they have taken up residence in my yard,

Rufuz is not happy, as they have left here their calling cards,

Sorry to bitch as all this rain just totally sucks…


Had plans to go out,

Will get wet and then some just about,

If April showers bring May flowers,

Then inundated we will be in pretty colors and scents,

Till then though, by this rain, everything seems to be unpleasantly soured…

It turned cold here and it snowed in the mountains of West Virginia and Virginia and Michigan got snow. But we have fireplace and keep warm that way. Bear likes rain but the others come in quick when it does. Clear today but cold.

I love the rain, it washes clean the air and here, provides much needed moisture. All of our water comes from wells so rain and snow-pack are very important for our crops and for our drinking water. I used to blame the rain for my moods, now I let it clear my head and watch as it waters my gardens for me. It has been raining on and off here today, starting off the morning with thunderstorms. It is warm anyway, so it feels like spring. I have a pot of soup cooking on my stove, probably the last day for doing that until next year.
Take care,

Oh yeah, Jersey showers... growing up in the northern section of NJ, to me it rained everyday... so much green, so many trees, it had to rain... then in the mid 70s there was no rain... reservoirs drying up, not able to flush the toilet, enjoy it... here in the plains we had a very mild winter and so far a dry spring... preparing for another long hot dry summer...
