Oh Give Me Rain

Nature Notes Thursday

Clouds oh beautiful clouds. Now if you live anywhere but Arizona you might not appreciate clouds like I do. Those home on the range where the skies are not clouded all day can get rather boring. Not to mention that the temps in the 100's are hot. It's sort of like walking around in a blast furnace. You don't sweat because it evaporates before it can form moisture drops. A cloudy day in May is a treat for my eyes and the cool 65 degrees is a joy to my soul.

Oh I can't imagine that intense heat and days without clouds!

Re my dandelion photos -- I just get as close as I can to take the shots, and shoot at a pretty high resolution so I can crop and maintain the quality of the photo.

When I download the photos I frequently see things I didn't see when I took the shot. Thanks for visiting my site!

I wouldn't last a week in temperatures like that. Not without air conditioning, for sure. Those clouds must be a welcome sight indeed.

I can relate - except for the sweating part. We're heading into the season where the clouds mean constant high humidity, and the sweat doesn't evaporate, it just saturates you. You packed a lot of emotion in a small space. I grok. Just differently.:-)

I can so relate to this post although this year we have had plenty of rain. However 2007 through to the spring of 2008 we had such a bad drought where I live in NC that the papers were daily reporting how many days left we had before the reservoir which supplies us with water would run out. I don't think I'll ever tire of rain again after several years of minor drought and one year of exceptional drought conditions.
