FOTD – September 19 – Rain Glorious Rain

Welcome to my Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).  Please feel free to post every day or when you you feel like it.  Don’t forget that my FOTD challenge accepts gardens, leaves and berries as well as flowers.

Friday night at 11:34pm it started to rain. It’s the first measurable rain have had since February. Where I live in Oregon the only dry months are July and August. This rain is so appreciated and should continue through Sunday. Rain Glorious Rain!!!!

We don’t get thunderstorms here, but two of my favorite sounds are ocean waves and thunder.

I’ve gathered a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

  1. When it started to rain in May, I was waiting for the rain to pass, the temperature to rise while we watch the rivers turn to mud flats. But it didn’t stop raining in May and it rained twice as much in June. It set records in July and pretty much matched it in August. So far we’ve had more sun and less rain, but there have been at least two rainy days each week and I’m hoping — even if it messes up the foliage display — that it keeps raining and we have a lot of snow during the winter.

    We have had this drought slowly getting worse each years since 2009 or so. A little less rain each summer when we normally don’t get rain anyway and completely missing the spring melt off and the rains we got with the melting. Who knows what the future holds? We don’t have “city water.” We have a well as does everyone in this area, so if we run dry, there’s no backup. That’s IT. This is normally such a wet region, no one worried about prolonged drought.

    We all failed to worry about a lot of things we probably should have worried about.

    Congratulations. May this be the start of better weather!

  2. That is a long time with no rain! Here at least it seems to come more evenly distributed most of the time, but we have had some problems with flooding in some areas this summer.

  3. We’re never all happy at once, are we? The prospect of heavy rain today has spoilt my chances of walking on the North York Moors, but I can totally see why it’s a blessing for you.

    • Portland (40 minutes north of us) got 1.38 inches of rain yesterday. How wonderful. More rain today, but probably not as much. I’d love the forecast to be wrong though. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  4. I am the same……crashing waves and thunderstorms are favourites of mine too. We don’t get thunderstorms here in Tasmania very much either and I miss them so much. I am glad you are getting the wet stuff….good for plants everywhere.
