Rain, Rain, Go Away

I am so sick of rain.

It has rained almost every day this summer with the added bonus of some sort of thunderstorm rolling in every couple of days. Last night's storm was particularly notable. The thunderclaps shook the house numerous times and at one point is was almost like the fourth of July.

It even rained during our grand tour of up north. The rivers were running high and fast with no hope of their going down in the near future. Once again we missed out on fireworks.

On the upside we have seen plenty of rainbows. I caught this one up at my cousin's house in VT. It stretched all across the sky and lingered for quite some time. The only other benefit is that I have yet to turn on our sprinkler system. With all the rain we are getting the lawn is just fine, thank you very much.

It's been wetter than normal here, too. After last year's drought, it's hard to complain about the rain. Everything is lush and green. Though from what I hear, the farmers have had some issues with washed out or rotting crops.

There really is no happy medium, is there?

No, there really isn't. I've decided the lower water bills are a fair enough trade off, for now.
