tropical storm alex
the rains started yesterday with winds blowing
about 40 mph
as alex made his way over the island
i love a good storm!
i could be one of those storm chaser types.
i remember when we had a hurricane in nova scotia
i was the one outside standing in the yard~
it excites me!
on a practical note we need the rain here to
increase the water table level
we haven't had rain for so long that many people's
sisterns are almost dry.
also it is so good for the plants and trees!
this morning as the rain fell i could almost
feel the earth sighing with pleasure.
if you look at the photo you will see how brown the water is
that isn't typical at all
the wind and the waves stir up the sand
and then the water goes brown like that.
even on grey days there is beauty
to be found.
i have enjoyed the coolness today
i baked some muffins this morning
and am roasting a chicken tonight.
yum yum yum!
