Woke up to the rain

I woke up to the sound of rain on the roof and a gentle ticking of the rose-of-sharon bush outside our bedroom window.

The weather-folk said we could have rain later today at the earliest. But the hurricane in the Gulf changed the dynamics in the atmosphere.

Jilda and I shoe'd up after coffee and headed out for a walk. The rain had stopped but the grass was wet enough to dampen our shoes and sox.

The light was a little wonky, but there were a few photo ops. The yellow heart is a muscadine leaf and the red is what I think they call pin oak.

The hurricane made landfall on the Panhandle of Florida and moved over southern Alabama. A cold front from the west is pushing the circulation eastward. It's now over Georga heading for the Atlantic.

If any of you are in the path of the wind, stay safe.


  1. Glad you are ok. They are forecasting rain here in central NC later today. I am watching the video and photos being posted from

  2. I'm glad that you are safe from Michael. We are having a gentle rain here today and the wood stove is lit to take the chill out of the house.

    Did you harvested grapes from your muscadine trees?
    Hugs, Julia

  3. If rain and cooler weather is all you are getting from this storm, then it's a blessing. Up north we'll probably not feel anything at all as far as Michael goes, but we are definitely starting to cool down starting today. Glad you are once again able to enjoy those morning walks. Life is good.
